Dear Abhay,
My personal advice .."Please don't take any chances and general guidance in LPG storage and usage". The guidance has to be from professional who have many years of experience in handling the Safety and statutory. Remember you / your company will be held responsible finally for any mishap.
For expert advice .... Please contact Mec Elec Industries at Mumbai. I think the person is Divekar or Godbole Their website is ::Mec Elec Industrial Services Pvt. Ltd. ::
I had worked with them some years back and i have found them very good in SMPV act related jobs including audit, guidance and handling the licence part.
Remember Safety above all ..... All the best !!
