Pradhan Mantri LPG Panchayat
The Pradhan Mantri LPG Panchayatscheme is a backup to the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana to distribute LPG connections among the rural areas where conventional fuel is used for domestic purposes. LPG Panchayat will serve as an interactive platform between those who received LPG cylinders under PMUY, officials, LPG distributors, and NGOs.
LPG Panchayat services
In one LPG panchayat, around 100 LPG customers of nearby areas will share their experiences with each other. They can also share their problems and suggestions. The panchayats will also include safe practices, quality of service provided by distributors and availability of refill cylinders. Through officials of the oil PSUs, NGOs, Asha workers, and social workers, the Panchayat aims to connect with the beneficiaries of the Ujjwala Yojana to resolve issues and wrong beliefs they may have.
First LPG Panchayat
The center plans to conduct one lakh LPG panchayats across the country in the next year-and-a-half. Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Saturday launched the 'Pradhan Mantri LPG Panchayat' from Mota Ishanpur village and handed over free LPG connection to a beneficiary of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana.
