The BPCL is carrying out an awareness campaign across the heritage town on the new facility.

“It is a major development and residents of Cooch Behar town will benefit from it. There are indications that cost will be less if natural gas is supplied through pipelines instead of LPG cylinders.... We want the residents here to avail the benefit...,” said Ghosh.

BPCL officials said that from this week, they would initiate the process of laying pipelines across the town.

“In Cooch Behar, we will provide around 25,000 connections. So far, we have received 7,000 applications and by March next year, we would be in a position to supply gas to 1,000 households,” said B.C. Sikdar, the territory manager (I) of BPCL in Bengal.
