Why this school

City gas distribution (CGD) is fast emerging as the preferred distribution system to improve access to green energy in India. With the path-breaking efforts of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) for laying, building, operating and expanding city gas distribution in the country, the requirement for a trained workforce in the field of CGD is increasing every day. 


The sudden rise in trained workforce in this segment has arisen consequent of the focus of the Govt of India on boosting PNG (Piped Natural Gas) utilisation. Many PSU and State Government organisations are promoting this endeavour of skill development and enhancing employability towards “Aatmanirbhar Bharat”. 


The idea of a CGD skill development and gas metering school for Saksham Bharat evolved since Secure ventured into gas MBC in India to meet the last mile connectivity requirement of an appropriately trained workforce. The school aims to develop the skills and train people to meet the requirement of CGDs in quality and quantity on a sustained and evolving basis. The curriculum has been designed to impart the technical skills focused on gas pipeline installation for last mile connectivity to household Piped Natural Gas (PNG). In future, the scope of the course will be further enhanced to include knowledge of installing PE and steel pipelines.
