The project will cover Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Bathinda, Mohali, Fatehgarh Sahib and Rupnagar in the first phase. Work has already started in these areas after companies got permission from the regulator, Petroleum & Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB).

These companies would pay rent on per year basis to the urban local bodies, leading to economic self-dependence of the urban bodies.

The piped gas connection would be available for all types of consumers, be it in domestic, transportation, business or industrial category. This would eliminate chances of pilferage.

The scheme would cover all 167 cities and towns in the state. In the second phase, PNGRB has selected Patiala, Moga, Sangrur, Barnala, Kapurthala and Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar.
