As part of the Urja- Ganga scheme, the gas grid project will connect eight North-Eastern states to the National Gas Grid. It is a part of the Government of India’s (GOI) Hydrocarbon Vision 2030.
The land acquisition process for the Right of Use (RoU) of the pipeline is currently going on in all the North-Eastern states.
