Title: Need to expedite supply of L.P.G. through pipeline in Mumbai.

SHRI KIRIT SOMAIYA (MUMBAI NORTH EAST) Sir, Two months back Department of Petroleum announced to provide LPG cooking gas through pipeline in various parts of Mumbai. Residents of Mumbai, particularly Eastern suburbs, were asked to apply. Thousands of people have applied for gas pipeline at their residence. No action has been taken till today. No connection has been provided in the last so many months. People, residents are finding it difficult as there is no LPG connection in their houses, particularly housewives are demanding and requesting the Ministry concerned and also Mahanagar Gas Company an undertaking of Union Government to expedite the gas connection plan.

I would like to request the concerned Ministry to expedite the action plan to provide gas connection through pipelines with the help of Mahanagar Gas Limited at each and every house in Eastern Mumbai and other parts of Mumbai. The action plan, time table and the procedure of getting gas, LPG cooking gas through pipeline in their houses may also be announced.
