    “The government of Gujarat had also approached the Ministry of Finance for financial support from the Asian Development Bank for execution of MBBVPL project,” Pradhan said.

    “Keeping in view the importance of this pipeline project, MoP&NG has conveyed its support to the request of government of Gujarat for financial assistance from ADB to the Ministry of Finance in this regard,” he added.

    In its first such funding of a gas pipeline project, the central government is providing Rs 5,176 crore, or about 40 per cent of the project cost.
