Biogas is natural gas which is used as a fuel in many countries. Delhi Jal Board also produces biogas a by treating the sewer water. Since the petroleum resources are depleting in a fast pace, the availability of LPG gas is decreasing. Delhi Jal Board also fulfills the need of fuel gas for the people of Delhi. A wide network of pipes serves this service; hence, there is no need to store the gas in cylinders. The amount of consumption of Biogas is calculated through the meter installed at the consumer’s site. It has not only solved the problem of consumers for storing the gas but has also helped the government to supply the fuel gas in a safe manner. Every consumer needs to pay the bill according to the meter reading and the board decides the rate of the gas.
