Dharmendra Pradhan – Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas
Privileged to witness the dedication and foundation stone laying of 21st-century infrastructure projects in Kochi by PM Shri Narendra Modi.
These projects, including in petrochemicals will catalyse industrial and economic growth in southern India.
The ambitious projects inaugurated today by PM Modi will strengthen Make In India initiatives, champion development across sectors, boost tourism, create revenue and employment opportunities in Kerala and give speed to the Aatmanirbhar initiative.
Building 21st-century infrastructure that reflects the identity of New India is a key priority of PM Shri Narendra Modi’s govt. in fulfilling aspirations of people, facilitating ease-of-living and building a future-ready India.
BPCL’s state-of-the-art Propylene Derivatives Petrochemical Complex is one more step towards creating next-gen infrastructure in the country, that will help harness the full development potential of Kerala and south India.
Built with an investment of ₹6,000 crore, the modern PDPP unit will produce niche petrochemical products that are currently being imported, encourage downstream petrochemical industries in the region and create economic & employment opportunities in the state.
Inauguration of the International cruise terminal ‘Sagarika’ at Kochi port along with other waterways projects inaugurated today will give fillip to trade with reduced costs, transform our coastal areas and open up new vistas of opportunities in Kerala.
In the last 6 years the oil & gas industry has invested around ₹25,000 crore in Kerala in petroleum projects, including in refinery, pipelines, marketing & CGD network.
The oil industry is also contributing approx. ₹7,500 crore annually to the state exchequer.
Last month, PM Narendra Modi ji also dedicated the 450 km-long Kochi-Mangaluru natural gas pipeline to the nation.
Gratitude to PM Modi for continuously working to realise the holistic vision of Late Atal ji in making Kerala a powerhouse of prosperity.
I thank Kerala Governor Shri Arif Mohammad Khan, CM Shri Pinarayi Vijayan, colleagues Shri VM Muraleedharan & Shri Mansukh Mandaviya for gracing this occasion.
I also thank the wonderful people of Kerala for joining this momentous occasion via digital mediums.

Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has decided that all lanes in the fee plazas on National Highways shall be declared as “FASTag lane of the fee plaza” w.e.f midnight of 15th/16th February 2021.
Therefore, as per NH Fee Rules 2008, any vehicle not fitted with FASTag or vehicle without valid, functional FASTagentering into the FASTag lane of the fee plaza shall pay a fee equivalent to two times of the fee applicable to that category.

Category ‘M’ stands for a motor vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying passengers.
And Category ‘N’ stands for a motor vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying goods, which may also carry persons in addition to goods.
Nitin Gadkari – Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways:
In continuation to our effort to reduce costs through innovation, all steel whether produced from ore, billets, pellets or melting of scrap would be allowed to be used for NH construction as long as it meets the standards required for specific grades of steel.
The steel proposed to be used would be tested in NABL accredited laboratories as a third party check before source approval.
With this step, the supplier base for steel used in the construction of national highways would be enhanced leading to more competitive and better price discovery by the markets.
PM Narendra Modi:
A special day in our journey to become Aatmanirbhar in the defence sector.
Arjun Main Battle Tank (MK-1A) was handed over to the Army.
A tank made in Tamil Nadu will protect our borders.

Emotions are such that they can take over your sense of reasoning. When you recognise this, you are already one step out of it and that’s when you really rejoice even in a conflict:
