IGX Delivery Based Gas Trading Portal Launch by IEX India

The platform is fully automated with a web-based interface to provide a seamless trading experience to the customers.  During the virtual launch ceremony, Pradhan said that the launch of the new electronic trading platform for natural gas today will help the nation move towards “free-market pricing of natural gas”.
IGX will play a bigger role towards realizing a free market for gas, he added, as there will be a market-driven pricing mechanism. 
Pradhan also said that Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) is working on rationalization of tariff to make natural gas affordable in every part of the country.
“The government has no business to be in business and the consumer is the king in a free market,” the Oil minister added. He also said that through IGX, India’s vision on mega investments on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals, gas pipelines, CGD infrastructure and permission for market-driven price mechanism will be materialized.
