The terms LPG has become a household name as it is used in each and every household across the country and the clean fuel has even penetrated into the rural and interior parts of India. The central government with an intention to popularize the use of LPG across the country decided to provide the same at subsidized rates for the domestic purpose making it more affordable for the end consumer.
The subsidized amount will be directly transferred to the customer's bank account directly through the Direct Benefit Transfer for LPG (DBTL) Scheme. With an intention to curb the malpractices of misusing the subsidized LPG for other than domestic purpose, the government of India launched the DBTL scheme in 291 districts which currently covers 9 crore consumer across the country as on June 1, 2013.
As per the scheme, the customers will pay the market price as fixed by the gas distributor at the time of delivery for an LPG cylinder and the subsidy amount will be transferred to their respective bank account which has been linked with the LPG gas connection. Effectively, the government wants to provide a direct subsidy to the customers and hence the subsidy amount will reach the intended beneficiary as the amount is credited to their bank account.
Starting from March 10, 2014, the DBTL Scheme is held in Abeyance.
The customer will have to submit his/her Aadhaar number to the distributor at the time of securing the new connection or if they already have a connection in that case, customers will have to meet the respective gas agent and submit the Aadhaar card photocopy. The Aadhaar card of the customer has to be linked to his/her consumer number.
Lastly, the customer has to link his/her Aadhaar number to his/her bank account.
