Karnaphuli Gas Distribution Company Ltd (KGDCL) will install one lakh gas meters in the port city by its own fund.
After installing 60 thousand domestic gas meters in the first project, the KGDCL has proposed to install one lakh prepaid gas meters with own funding under 3rd project.
The prepaid gas meter has become popular among the domestic gas consumers due to austerity of gas consumption. The installation of two lakh gas meters under the second phase faced a thaw due to lack of foreign assistance. The KGDCL has taken the third project for installing one lakh meters with own funding.
The third project is expected to start shortly.
The project proposal of the third project for installing one lakh meters with own finance will be sent to concerned ministry next month, the MD said. Following the approval of the concerned ministry, the project proposal will be presented before the next ECNEC meeting for finalization of the project work, the source added.
