‘LPG bottling plants to benefit 40 lakh households, boost local economy’

Around 40 lakh households in Bihar and Jharkhand will benefit from the newly launched LPG bottling plants in East Champaran and Banka districts. The plants, inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi through videoconferencing on Sunday under the PM Ujjwala Yojana, are expected to supply LPG cylinders to lakhs of domestic and commercial consumers in Muzaffarpur, Siwan, Gopalganj, Sitamarhi, Bhagalpur, Banka, Jamui, Araria, Kishanganj, Katihar, East Champaran and West Champaran districts.

With a combined bottling capacity of 80,000 cylinders per day, the plants will also provide direct and indirect employment to over 1,000 people in these areas.

Vibhash Kumar, executive director of Indian Oil-Bihar and state coordinator of oil marketing companies (OMCs) in the state said the two LPG bottling plants would help supply clean fuel to the poorest of poor households.
