New Delhi, Aug 6 (ANI): Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dr. M Veerappa Moily informed the Rajya Sabha in a written reply on Tuesday that Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL) will provide Piped Natural Gas (PNG) connections to all feasible areas in Delhi.

Dr. Moily was replying to specific query regarding Kapashera village of Delhi, and he added that IGL's pipeline network laying work is already in progress near Samalkha crossing which is 2 kms from Kapashera village.

Dr. Moily emphasized that IGL is committed to provide PNG connections to all technically feasible areas of Delhi.
