Adani Gas won rights to retail CNG to automobiles and piped cooking gas to households and industries in 13 cities on its own and another nine, including Allahabad, in a joint venture with IOC, according to results of 84 cities that were bid out in the country’s biggest city gas distribution (CGD) bid round.

Also, the entities have committed to provide 2.1 crore piped natural gas connections to households kitchens by September 30, 2026.

When the ninth CGD bidding round closed in July, IOC, BPCL and Adani Gas were the top bidders. As many as 86 cities were offered in the bid round but results of two have been withheld pending legal challenge mounted by certain bidders.

Adani Gas on its own bid for 32 cities. Bharat Gas Resources Ltd bid for as many as 53 cities, while GAIL Gas Ltd put in offers for 34 cities.

Petronet LNG Ltd, India’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) importer, sought to foray into CGD business by bidding for a licence in seven cities but drew a blank. Indraprastha Gas Ltd had put in bids for 11 cities.

PNGRB said the ninth CGD bidding round was launched on April 12 for development of city gas networks for the 86 geographical areas (GAs) which includes 174 districts (156 complete and 18 part), spread over 22 states and Union Territories (UTs) in India.
