Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated to the nation the LPG import terminal, 348 km Dobhi–Durgapur natural gas pipeline section, which is part of the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga project in Haldia, West Bengal, on 7 February 2021. 
 
He also laid the foundation stone of the second Catalytic Isodewaxing unit of Haldia Refinery and dedicated to the nation the four-lane ROB-cum-flyover at Ranichak, Haldia on NH-41. 
 
The four projects will improve both ease of living and ease of doing business in the region. These projects will also help Haldia to grow into a major hub of export-import. 
 
The 350 km Dobhi-Durgapur natural gas pipeline will directly benefit not only West Bengal but also 10 districts of Bihar and Jharkhand. The construction work provided 11 lakh man days employment to locals. 
 
This will also provide clean piped LPG to kitchens and enable clean CNG vehicles. Sindri and Durgapur fertiliser factories will get continuous gas supply. 
 
The PM also asked GAIL and the state government to quickly finish Durgapur-Haldia section of Jagdishpur-Haldia and Bokaro-Dhamra pipeline. 
 
As Ujjawala Scheme has resulted in much higher coverage and demand for LPG in the region, work is on for improving LPG infrastructure in the region. As much as 90 lakh free LPG connections were given to women in the state which include more than 36 lakh women belonging to SC/ST category. 
 
In the last six years LPG coverage in the state has jumped from 41 percent to 99 percent. The Union Budget 2021-22 has proposed one crore more free gas connections under Ujjwala Scheme. 
 
LPG import terminal of Haldia will play a big role in meeting the high demand as it will serve crores of families in West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and North-East as more than  two crore people will get gas out of which one crore will be beneficiary of Ujjwala Scheme. 
 
Apart from this, as a part of the plan for clean fuel, work on capacity augmentation of BS-6 fuel plant has commenced. This second Catalytic Dewaxing unit will reduce dependence on import with regard to lube-based oils. 
 
The new flyover and the proposed multi-modal terminal of the Inland Waterways Authority will improve the connectivity. This will lead to emergence of Haldia as a centre of immense energy for Aatmnirbhar Bharat.
