GAIL (India) Limited is likely to build India’s second floating compressed natural gas (CNG) station in front of Ravidas Ghat in Varanasi.

The CNG station will be built on land provided by Varanasi Development Authority (VDA) with special technology having an expected life of 100 years. Works on converting boats running on petrol/ diesel to run on CNG has almost been completed.

Ina bid to make Ganges pollution free, GAIL launched the country’s first floating CNG station at Namo Ghat in July 2022.
