BPCL to start community kitchen

R Vimal Kumar



For society: A community kitchen opened by BPCL in Tirupur District.

Tirupur: Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) is to set up a community kitchen at the district headquarters hospital here shortly.

The project is mooted as part of the Union Government's ‘Vision-2015' programme to make the domestic LPG available to the deprived sections of society wherever possible through the common LPG kitchen mode. The features of the scheme had been drafted by the Union Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. BPCL Territory Manager S. Thangavel told The Hindu that the kitchen planned in Tirupur district headquarters hospital would be equipped with a total of five burners , suraksha hoses, pipeline and manifolds to enable the people visiting the hospital to boil milk, heat water and prepare food for the patients.

“The ‘Rasoi Ghar' (i.e. kitchen house) system is of immense help to the bystanders in the wards who normally find it difficult to fetch food or milk at the time of urgent need in the wee hours,” he said.

As per the scheme guidelines, a minimal cooking charge of Rs. 5.67 for an hour would be levied from the users of community kitchen.
