You will have to check with Power Supply and your gas supplier in India as to the psi that the lpg is delivered at, as the piped lpg here may be of a different pressure. If this is the case that would entail changing of the orifice nozzles in the burners of the stove. Unknown if your Indian made stove uses interchangeable nozzles like they do here (Piped Gas vrs. Bottle Gas) as the two are different pressures.

Learn something new everyday, I often wondered why you need to change the gas nozzles between bottle and piped gas, to me gas is gas.

I learned the hard way about 25 years ago. I was given a stove that was almost new (I lived in Seletar Camp back in those days) but it had come from a flat with piped gas. I hooked it up not knowing any difference and connected the bottled gas and turned it on and hit the spark button and looked at what appeared to be a bonfire with flames about 300mm in height coming out of the burner. Was thankful we had 14' ceilings out there else I would have had to repaint the ceiling! Bottled gas is higher pressure than piped gas.

If you have an LPG stove you must use bottled gas here. If you connect to the city gas, it is natural gas, aka methane, and you must have your stove rejetted. Hard to do with a lot of stoves. Bottled gas plentiful and cheap.
