TheUttar Pradesh government has issued guidelines for the supply of piped natural gas (PNG) to the industrial development authorities. The main objective of the directive is to ensure environmental conservation and provide a safe fuel to the industries.

All industrial development authorities in the state have been directed to implement the ‘Dig and Restore’ policy in industrial areas. The policy will facilitate infrastructure development by authorised gas companies for supply of PNG.

The government is also taking necessary steps to convert major highways of the state into Green Energy Corridors in a bid to promote the use of pollution-free fuel in the transport sector.
