Gail to participate in Surat vendor development programme

Surat, Mar 1 (KNN)  Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) will participate in a state level vendor development programme organised by industry bodies here on March-4.
 
The state level vendor development programme is being organised by the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry, MSME Development Institute – Ahmedabad and Suraj Engineering Vikas Association.
 
Vendor Development Programmes (VDPs) are being organized by MSME Development Institutes across the country to provide a common platform for business as well as selling organizations to interact with each other with a view to identifying emerging demands of the buyer organizations while simultaneously providing an opportunity for displaying the capabilities of the small scale entrepreneurs and their industrial ventures.
 
Such programmes have proved to be of immense use in locating suitable entrepreneurs by a number of buying organizations including the Public Sector Enterprises, various Wings of Defence, Railways and others in indigenising a number of products which hitherto have been imported at a colossal cost.
 
The Gas Authority of India Ltd (GAIL), one of India's leading public sector enterprises, is the largest gas transmission and marketing company in the country.  The company, possessing a well-developed and efficient infrastructure, was established as a wholly owned company of the Government of India in August, 1984 and, within a short time, it has grown into one of the 'Navratna'enterprises and is ranked among the top ten companies in India.
 
The various activities of the company range from gas marketing and distribution through trunk and regional systems, to retailing of natural gas to gas processing for production and marketing of LPG, liquid hydrocarbons and Petrochemicals.
