 Forty-eight out of the 55 LPG industries operating in the country have not yet taken the Nepal Standard certification. 
Although the government has made the NS certification mark mandatory to all the LPG industries, these 48 companies have not heeded the government's order. 
The Bureau of Standards and Metrology in last December had initiated action against LPG industries operating without acquiring the NS certification. They had stated that they would take the certification mark within two months but have not done so. 
Bureau director-general Bishwa Babu Pudasaini said the number of LPG industries taking the NS certification mark from the Bureau has increased. 
"Three LPG industries have taken the certification after starting the campaign to take action while 20 are in the process of taking it," he said. 
According to him, the Bureau has asked for the necessary documents with all the LPG industries for providing the NS certificate to them. 
The LPG industries which have taken NS certification so far include Manoj Gas Industry Birgunj, Shree Krishna Gas Industry Dhading, Saibaba Gas Industry Dhading, Nepal Gas Industry Balaju, Janaki Gas Industry Nawalparasi, Metro Gas Industry Dhading and NL Gas Industry Birgunj.
