How can imports be reduced?

Petrol price in the country today crossed Rs 100 per liter, in Rajasthan, the price of petrol hit a century and in Madhya Pradesh it is close to crossing this mark. Importantly, oil prices are based on international prices. The Prime Minister said his government is sensitive to the plight of the middle class and India is now focusing on ethanol to help farmers and consumers.

He said the extraction of ethanol from sugarcane would help reduce these imports and also give farmers an option of income. Modi said the government was focusing on renewable energy sources and would produce 40 per cent of the country's energy by 2030. He said, ‘About 6.52 million tonnes of petroleum products have been exported. This number is expected to increase further. Our companies have invested abroad to acquire quality oil and gas assets.

Emphasis needs to be placed on oil and gas infrastructure

PM Modi said that the government has spent Rs 5 lakh crore on construction of oil and gas infrastructure in five years. 7.5 lakh crore and plans are afoot to expand the city's gas distribution network to cover 470 districts. The Prime Minister said the government was working to increase the share of natural gas in the current energy sector from 6.3 per cent to 15 per cent.

What is this project?

The project will help utilize gas from the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation's gas fields and make natural gas available to industries and other commercial consumers. The construction of the sulfur free gasoline unit has cost around Rs 500 crore. It is a unit of 8 ppm and is designed to produce less sulfur than ecofriendly gasoline. It will also help reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a cleaner environment.
