• Gajendra Singh to be Gail marketing director

    The country’s biggest gas utility, Gail, is set to get a new director (marketing) in Gajendra Singh at a time when the government is pushing to create a gas-based economy.

    Singh, who is executive director in Gail at present, has been chosen by the Public Enterprises Selection Board from among 10 candidates short-listed for interviews for the post.

    A software engineer, Singh started his career with ONGC in 1985 and joined Gail in 1986 when the gas industry was at its nascent stage. Since then, Singh has been involved in the execution of prestigious projects of GAIL including the country’s first arterial gas pipeline — Hazira-Viajipur-Jagdihpur line.

    His current responsibility entails expanding gas market and ensure capacity utilisation of Gail’s pipeline network. As a director on the company’s board, once his appointment is cleared by the pertinent Cabinet panel, his scope of work would expand to include driving future growth in gas use in line with the government’s aim of creating a gas-based economy. Julien Gauthier Jersey
