Mumbai, 18/12/2018: Post the approval of Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) to expand the beneficiary list under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), IndianOil in a meeting with key officials pan-India, developed a blue-print to ensure hassle-free release of LPG connections to all eligible beneficiaries. Addressing senior IndianOil officials across all states, Mr. Gurmeet Singh, Director (Marketing), IndianOil said, “It should be our endeavor that every kitchen in the country is smoke-free and healthy with easy access to LPG. With our sustained efforts, LPG coverage in the country has improved to 89.5% as on 01.12.18 from 61.9% as on 01.04.2016. Now we should aim to achieve universal LPG coverage as clean cooking fuel and encourage its sustained use, which is also the objective of PMUY”.

Mr. Singh also emphasized on making available 5 kg cylinder to PMUY beneficiaries for better affordability and sustained usage of LPG. He also exhorted the LPG vertical to increase awareness about deferring the recovery of interest free loan availed by PMUY beneficiaries (to purchase stove and refill) upto 6 refills or one year, whichever is earlier w.e.f. from 01.04.2018. He went on to stress that LPG is economical compared to alternate fuels like cow –dung, firewood, and coal and the socio-economic benefits should be conveyed to the public at large.
