With the price of LPG gas cylinders going up, the need of the hour is technology that can provide cooking gas — an efficient fuel — that will help the poor, particularly the rural population.

Vivekananda Kendra-Natural Resources Development (Vk- Nardep), an NGO in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, has come out with a low-volume fixed model Shakthi-Surabhi gas generating plant, aimed at solving the energy problems of the rural community.
