The 24X7 piped compressed natural gas (CNG) supply for cooking and domestic use is set to begin in August 2022 in some towns and cities of Rayalaseema. These will be available at a cheaper price than liquified petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders. AG&P Pratham began its operations in June 2021 and is fast-tracking the project in Anantapur and Kadapa cities. The company is also implementing an Rs 4 billion project to provide CNG supply to industries, automobile and bulk users in Nellore, Chittoor, Kadapa and Anantapur. Currently, work on 900 connections has been completed and the aim is to provide 57,000 connections.
