Linking the Aadhaar Card to your LPG connection has remained a top priority of the government, who have been pushing the Pahal Scheme.
This has helped to curb leakages, though there are many complaints that bank accounts are not being credited with the subsidy amount and there are delays.
The systems still need some more full proof planning. There is still chaos at some of the gas dealers in the major cities as many individuals looking to link their accounts still have some way to go in terms of fulfilling documentation requirements.
The finer details
When you have an Aadhaar Card and still you have not linked to your LPG connection then you are missing your subsidies.
As per the scheme by government, LPG consumers will receive their LPG cylinders at full market price and will get their subsidy amounts directly in their bank accounts.
What this means is that initially you pay the full amount for the cylinder which is around Rs 625 currently. The government will credit the subsidy amount which currently comes to less than Rs 200 directly into your account.
If you have linked your Aadhaar card with your bank account and LPG connection you will receive a certain amount from the government.
If you have an Aadhaar number, then please visit your nearest branch to link your Aadhaar with your Bank account and also submit the same to your LPG dealer.

So, it's best you apply for one, because the more you delay the more you would lose in terms of subsidies.
