In a notable development, AG&P Pratham launched a compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Guntakal on May 3, 2022. This is the fourth CNG station in Anantapur district. The company has also launched a “Mega CNG Exchange Mela” to give easy and affordable exchange options for diesel, petrol, Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and CNG run autos in districts of Tirupati, Nellore, Kadapa and Anantapur. The exchange mela is of deep interest specially to auto drivers as converting to CNG autos will help them reduce cost by Rs 10,000 per month. AG&P Pratham currently supplies 1,300 kg of natural gas every day to four CNG stations in Anantapur and targets to build 5 more CNG stations in the district in next six months.
