The government has stopped receiving applications for natural gas connections to industries outside the country's designated economic zones (EZs) from April 1.

 

State-run gas marketing and distribution companies have already been asked not to provide new gas connections to industries outside the EZs to ensure the country's smooth industrial growth without hampering croplands.

 

The industries outside the EZs which had applied for new gas connections or their extensions before March 31 are only getting connections after proper scrutiny, said an official recently.

 

The decision not to provide new gas connections to industries outside the EZs after March was taken several months back in line with the instructions from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to discourage unplanned industrialization across the country, he said.
