“Approvals have been obtained from authorities concerned and it will be dedicated in the next few days,” Sivasankaran Rajagopalan, BPCL’s LPG state head for Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, told TOI. The plant refilling 12,000 cylinders a day will be despatching 40 loads of cylinders to Madurai, Theni, Dindigul, Sivaganga and Ramanathapuram districts that have monthly demand for 4.5 lakh cylinders. Of the 55 lakh Bharat Gas customers in Tamil Nadu – 24.6 per cent of the LPG market in the state – the Madurai plant will cater to the requirements of 8.9 lakh customers. It includes 2.6 lakh connections in Madurai. BPCL’s capacity in the state will increase to 585 TMT with the addition of the Madurai plant.
The plant has been planned to meet the futuristic requirements of the region that is seeing a steady increase in LPG connections. “Production in the plant can be doubled to 24,000 cylinders a day,” Rajagopalan added. While the year-on-year increase in consumer connections on the domestic front is around 5 per cent, it has climbed by more than three-fold to over 16 per cent during the lockdown due to the work from home scenario, as cooking at home has gone up.During the lockdown, online payment for LPG refills has also increased manifold. While only 1.5 per cent consumers opted for the online modes of paying for their refills prior to the lockdown it has now increased to 8 per cent. “We are targeting at 25 per cent by December this year,” Sivasankaran added.
