No intention of taking over PNGRB's role: OilMin 

Business Standard , May 12, 2017

With oil regulator PNGRB being rendered dysfunctional, the Petroleum Ministry on Thursday said it has no intention of taking over its functions like authorising laying of pipelines and giving CNG distribution licenses. Speaking at a FICCI conference, Petroleum Secretary K D Tripathi justified the government, and not PNGRB, issuing an authorisation to state-owned GAIL for laying a natural gas pipeline from Jagdishpur in Uttar Pradesh to Haldia in West Bengal to take the environment friendly fuel to cities like Varanasi.
