Pune: IGX is India’s first and only online delivery-based natural gas spot exchange authorised by PNGRB and it has been set up to facilitate the Government of India’s (GOI) vision of ushering into a Natural Gas Based economy. IGX is set up to facilitate a spot platform where natural gas is traded and delivered through a market-based mechanism.
