Govt to launch direct cash transfer for LPG in 20 districts from June

After receiving the subsidy, consumers in these selected 20 districts would have to buy the LPG cylinder at market rate

Petroleum minister Veerappa Moily said that the government would launch direct benefit transfer for LPG cylinders in 20 districts across the country from 1st June.

Under the scheme, LPG consumers in these 20 districts that have high coverage for Aadhaar number would receive the subsidy amount directly into their bank accounts as and when they book a new cylinder. After that, these consumers would have to pay the market rate for buying the LPG cylinder.

“For the benefit of LPG consumers, who cannot complete formalities by 1 June 2013, a grace period of three months is being given to complete the formalities. After this period, all consumers who have not completed the formality will get LPG cylinders at market price, without any subsidy, till they complete the same,” ministry of petroleum and natural gas said in a statement.

I am sorry to say but Aadhar coverage is indeed not high in any of these districts. According to local news paper reports it is around 20-40%. There are many issues ranging from people not getting their Aadhar card to people getting their Aadhar card but not linking their bank accounts.

That is one of the reason why this has been postponsed since Feb 2013 to March 2013, to May 2013 and now to June 2013. Not sure if June 2013 is indeed the strict deadline.
