It is the highest ranked Indian Company in the latest Fortune ‘Global 500’ listings. It is the country’s only commercial distribution of LPG cylinders in the country registered under the Department of Trade, under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MoEA) in Bhutan.
It operates in 10 dzongkhags of the country at present, namely: Thimphu, Chhukha, Samdrup Jongkhar, Sarpang, Trashigang, Trongsa, Samtse, Paro, Wangdue Phodrang, and Punakha. BIG anticipates expanding its coverage to the retail outlets across the country.
The Department of Trade under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MoEA) regulates the price of LPG in Bhutan and is slightly different for different districts depending on the transportation cost.
