GAIL Gas Limited has rolled out opportunities to partner with it in building CNG infrastructure in the city.

The company is motivating land owners and individuals to help set up a CNG station on dealer owned dealer operated (DODO) model. It will also give an opportunity to join the ‘Haccha Haridra Dakshina Kannada’ to provide clean fuel for the transport sector, said A K Jana, CEO, GAIL Gas.
