Nigambodh Capacity To Double With 3 More CNG Furnaces Before Winter
FUNERAL MANAGER SAYS: We secured funding for revamping the furnaces even before the Covid-19 pandemic struck, but the process got delayed due to the lockdown. In another month, we will again have six fully operational furnaces

New Delhi: Before the onset of winter, the Nigambodh Ghat crematorium will be ready to handle double the number of bodies through its six CNG furnaces, North Delhi Municipal Corporation has said.

The capital’s biggest cremation facility currently has three operational CNG furnaces, which are being used only for Covid-19 bodies, and another three will be functional before the winter, mayor Jai Prakash said. “More than 80% of the construction work has been completed,” he added. “The expansion is being carried out under a Rs 1.3-crore project funded by IGL and some NGOs.”
