Bhatinda-Jammu-Srinagar gas pipeline project

Revenue Deptt likely to move ordinance in state cabinet


Jammu, Jan 8: With more than one and half months remaining for the beginning of assembly session, the State Revenue Department is likely to move an ordinance in the state cabinet to pave way for start of work on Bhatinda-Jammu-Srinagar gas pipeline project.
 Sources in the civil secretariat said the government had been pressing for immediate start of the project which holds great significance for Jammu and Kashmir to overcome the shortage of gas supply. Due to special status of J&K, the work on the project has been delaying in absence of any legislation.
 The Central Act viz. Petroleum and Natural Gas Pipeline (Acquisition of Right of User) Act 1962 is not applicable in the State due to its special status. Besides, the State Acts like J&K Land Acquisition Immovability Property Act, 1968, does not provide acquisition Right of User (ROU) to Gujarat State Petronet Limited (GPSL).
 The provisions of Gujrat Water and Gas Pipeline (ROU) Act 2000 and P&MP Act 1962 are also not applicable to the State.
 Sources said the J&K government had decided to examine the possibility of enacting a law for Jammu and Kashmir, similar to Gujrat Water and Gas Pipeline Act.
 Sources said that after passing of the ordinance by the state cabinet the company engaged for executing the project, would officially start work including advertising of notices and tenders.
 Pertinently, the Bathinda-Jammu-Srinagar gas pipeline project has been awarded by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) of India to Gujarat State Petronet Limited (GSPL), a subsidiary of Gujarat government.
