Karnaphuli gas co to start operation by month-end
Framing of a legal structure is at the final stage to set up a separate gas distribution centre titled 'Karnaphuli Gas Distribution Company Ltd' to ensure smooth distribution of gas in greater Chittagong and CHT areas by the end of this month.
Everything is also set to introduce double shifts in five schools in the port city from next month, said Commerce and Education Adviser Hossain Zillur Rahman here yesterday.
Talking about the progress of the development package in the port city, Hossain Zillur said a related rule is being amended to facilitate acquisition of land for the development of large projects, particularly housing, spreading over more than 20 acres of land.
Besides, several projects of Chittagong Wasa and CCC got the Ecnec's approval for increased production of water and further development of drainage system in the port city, he added.
Zillur referred that the government had published a gazette notification on November 17 for restructuring of Bakharabad Gas Systems Ltd (BGSL) with an aim to help gas industry flourish and increase service standards of different companies through making coordination and rationalisation of the companies under Petrobangla.
KGDCL would start functioning at the BGSL building of Sholoshahar Shahar Gate No 2 area in the port city, he added.
The newly formed company would start providing gas connections for the gas-based industrial units on priority basis by the end of the month and complete the connections by June next year.
