Bhagalpur: Delay possible in the planning of house-to-house PNG and CNG stations, NHAI returned the application of IOCL

The plan of a CNG station for door-to-door supply of piped natural gas (PNG) and fuel in vehicles in Bhagalpur district is likely to get stuck. The application of Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) for laying a pipeline between Munger and Bhagalpur has been returned by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the NH Division.

Possible delay of 2-3 years in laying pipeline between Munger to Bhagalpur

According to the IOCL management, the application was given to the NH Division for laying the pipeline along the NH-80. The application was returned saying that the widening of NH-80 is complete. When the application for laying a pipeline through a green field four lane between Munger and Mirzachowki was sent to NHAI, then NHAI also returned the application saying approval only after the completion of the road construction. In such a situation, there may be a delay of two to three years in laying the pipeline between Munger and Bhagalpur. IOCL has demanded the state government to mediate. So far no way has been found.

CNG will be 25% cheaper than domestic gas

After door-to-door supply of PNG, people will spend 40 percent less money than domestic gas. The drivers will get 25% cheaper fuel than petrol from the CNG station which will be opened with the help of pipeline. There is less pollution in the environment than CNG. The PNG and CNG pipeline coming from Hathidah to Bhagalpur has been connected with Gaya and Patna link.

Pipeline work completed from Hathidah to Lakhisarai

According to IOCL, the work of laying pipeline for door-to-door supply of PNG gas between Hathidah to Lakhisarai has been completed. Work is going on at a fast pace between Suryagarha and Munger, but the matter is pending between Munger to Bhagalpur. The target was to complete the project from Hathidah to Bhagalpur by 2023. The pipeline work has already been delayed since the Corona period. Now NHAI and NH Division are trying to obstruct the work.
