Government of India realized that eradication of energy poverty is the single most important welfare measures that would facilitate economic wellbeing of the people. Providing clean fuel for cooking was an enabling measure for economic empowerment of the households. Against this backdrop, Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOPNG) with the objective of making clean cooking fuel available to rural poor households in the country, aiming  to improve the health of women and children, decided to launch Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY). .. It is also expected that as a result of using these cylinders, women will have to spend less time in the kitchen and they will be able to use the time saved in productive pursuits.

PMUY was launched by our honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modiji on 1st   May 2016 and till date the oil industry has succeeded in releasing connections to almost 3 crore beneficieraries across 710 districts of the country under this scheme in a short span of 16 months.
