YET another step has been initiated to
save the famous Taj Mabal in Agra from
environmental degradation. This time,
however, it will also benefit over 50,000
households in the city which will be pro-
vided with liquified petroleum gas (LPG)
connections' to ease the atmospheric
pollution caused partly by their use of
coal or wood to cook food.
The handing out of gas connections will be done on a priority basis in Agra under th .ni t f petroleum's "Save Taj" rogramme, as LPG is a "clean an environment-friendly fuel", according to the Hindustan Petroleum general manager S Venkat. Gas connections will also be supplied to the industries in Agra.
