She said three northern districts of Tripura have been getting regular LPG supply from Assam’s Silchar bottling plant.

“Except for Agartala, pipeline cooking gas supply network to the kitchen has not yet been created in other parts of the state. As a result, a large number of households depend on LPG cylinders. The CNG network has also not been extended to the whole of Tripura resulting in the dependency of vehicles on IOC for petrol and diesel.”

According to IOC officials, the plant has a capacity of 60,000 tonnes per annum and can bottle 17,000 cylinders every day, including commercial supplies. It is designed to store 1,350 tonnes in leak-proof mounded bullets of LPG, which will cater to the demand of the entire Tripura.
