Dear @AKGupta Ji, Many thanks for presenting your queries. I’ll try to answer them to the best of my ability. Per the 2011 Census population of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region is 20748395.
I’ve considered a population of 3 crores in my calculation, implying a population growth of 50% over 7 years.
Now, the number of autos-
The per day fuel expenditure for autos-
The attached screenshot is from a 2012 report. I’m assuming a 100% increase in fuel consumption.
The numbers I’ve considered are much higher than actual estimates.
The number of taxis-
Yet again, I’ve considered a 100% rise in the number of taxis.
And, the information on fuel spending for taxis was anecdotal. But, I’m fairly certain that the actual spending is in this range.
Also, I’ve made an assumption that 80% taxis switch to CNG, which is unlikely.
And, sure, the company will bid for the opportunity to establish piped gas services in various cities. But, most cities in the top 25 list have companies that are joint ventures between much larger companies. It wouldn’t be wrong to expect bidding to be extremely competitive for lucrative circuits.
Listt of cities and gas suppliers:
1)Mumbai- Mahanagar Gas
2)Delhi- Indraprastha Gas
3)Hyderabad - Bhagyanagar Gas( GAIL and HPCL joint venture)
4)Ahmedabad- Gujarat Gas
6)Surat- Gujarat Gas
7)Pune - MNGL
8)Lucknow-Green Gas ( GAIL and IOC joint venture)
9)Kanpur- CUPGL- Central UP Gas limited( Gail and BPCL joint venture)
10)Indore- Avantika Gas Limited (GAIL and HPCL joint venture)
12)Pimpri Chinchwad- MNGL
13)Vadodara- Vadodara Gas Limited ( GAIL and VMC joint venture)
15)Agra- Green Gas
