GAIL India, on Wednesday, got powers to divert domestic natural gas from the non-priority sector to meet the requirement of CNG (transport) and PNG (domestic) segments.

Revised guidelines

In its revised guidelines for allocation/supply of domestic natural gas, the Union Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas authorised the state-owned firm to meet the needs of the two segments as per their actual consumption.

It, however, would be subject to certain conditions, including supply of the gas at a uniform base price to each CGD (city gas distribution) entity.

The allocation, according to the Ministry, will be undertaken by GAIL at the end of every six months. It is authorised to supply domestic gas 10 per cent over and above the 100 per cent requirement of CNG (transport) and piped natural gas-domestic as per the last half yearly consumption.

This is towards meeting the fluctuation in demand from the two segments.
