Bombay Gas Company- Estd. 1862 - Reinvents - Mint Link
Bombay Gas Co. Ltd was formed in 1862 to provide street lighting and supply gas to households in the island city then known as Bombay.
It laid a 400-km pipeline network and distributed coal gas through it. The company faded into oblivion during the city’s transition from Bombay to Mumbai, after 120 years of active operations.
