IGL is a Joint Venture between GAIL and BPCL which was started in year 1998. It is a listed company in the Indian stock exchange.
It supplies PNG as well as CNG.
IGL has its operations spanning across different areas like NCT of Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad and Rewari. It has > 500 CNG stations, 11 lac + residential consumers and 4000 + industrial / commercial customers.
Nowadays, more and more people are shifting from LPG Gas cylinder connection to PNG connection.
PNG which stands for Piped Natural Gas, is a more cost effective and cleaner alternate gas.
PNG is mainly made up of methane with a small percentage of other hydrocarbons. Methane is known to be a more cleaner fuel.
Unlike gas cylinders which are more cumbersome to handle and need to be physically delivered every month to your home (as per your consumption), PNG supply to your place comes through a online supply system which consists of safety valves and regulators. It is a regular and uninterrupted connection.
This is more similar to having electricity or telephone connection, which is set-up once and then billed to you based on your consumption. The consumption is calculated based on your meter reading and billed to you.
Authorised IGL staff take the meter readings usually once every two months.
The bills are delivered at the customer’s residence. IGL also provide options of e-invoice which you can receive on your e-mail by registering for this facility on their website.
For the bill payments, you can make the payment online on their website or through any of the apps like Paytm, Phonepe etc.
If you have an existing LPG appliance, there are options to convert it to a PNG friendly one by calling the IGL technicians. Generally in such cases, you have to surrender your LPG connection to the respective oil company and get a refund of your security deposit amount. Since as per law, you cannot have both LPG and PNG connection.
The PNG connection charges will vary depending upon the type of house and applicable installation fees at the time of registration. Here again, you generally need to deposit interest free refundable security deposit to get a PNG connection.
