The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has authorized approximately 33,764 Km Natural Gas Pipeline Network across the country as on March 31, 2021. The aim is to create a national gas grid and increase the availability of natural gas across the country.

Accordingly, 19,998 km of Natural Gas pipeline (including sub-transmission pipeline & tie-in connectivity pipeline) are operational and 15,369 km are under various stages of construction.

The existing and upcoming pipelines will form a basic National Gas Grid in the country; however, expansion of pipeline infrastructure is a continuous effort based on gas demand assessment of various regions.

The development of City Gas Distribution (CGD) networks supports the availability and accessibility of natural gas in the form of Piped Natural Gas (PNG) to households, industrial uses and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for transportation uses. So far 232 Geographical Areas (GAs) have been authorized for development of CGD network across country up to 10th CGD Bidding Round covering more than 400 districts in the country in 27 States/Union Territories (UTs), which covers around 71% of India’s population and 53% of its area.
