Kohima, Sep. 10 (EMN):
Nagaland became the first state in the Northeast to open Hemkund Gases store/office in Kohima, which launched on Saturday with M/S TZZ Gas Agency as the distributor.

Advisor of Urban Development and Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Kire, inaugurated the store, after which the agency presented him with the first gas card, a stove, and a cylinder.

Kire lauded the agency for venturing into the business, saying that young entrepreneurs should start ‘something new’ instead of doing things that everyone does.

He advised them to be humble, respect one another and be kind to their customers.

‘Work with sincerity and devotion and let the business grow from scratch to the maximum,’ he said while advising them to put their trust in the ‘Lord’ for things to work out.

Located at Daklane colony, the store is expected to start functioning from Monday (Sep. 12) onwards and it will be operated by M/S TZZ Gas Agency, an acronym of the three proprietors namely, Thujove Tunyi, Zhovito Puro, and Zajamo Kikon.

The cylinders are available in five sizes — 4 kg, 15 kg, 21 kg, 33 kg, and 50 kg.

Director of Hemkund Gases, Rishi Bagga said the company had officially opened its first store in NE at Kohima, Nagaland. This will be followed by Tseminyu and Phek, he said, adding that they are planning to cover all the major districts of the state by September.

The company has also started operating in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, he informed.

While assuring that the company will provide all the required materials, he said they will take care of the transportation and penetrate their service to entire Nagaland.

He further informed that they source it from import terminals, importing LPG for all types of companies operating in India like IOCL, HPCL, BPCL and private LPG marketers operating in India.

Earlier in August, Nagaland’s first LPG bottling plant, also set up by Hemkund Gases at Virazuma village in Chumoukedima, was inaugurated by the Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Labour and Employment, Rameshwar Teli.
