To book a new LPG connection is no longer a tedious task and you can visit the nearest Indian distributor that provides services in your vicinity and enroll for a new connection by providing valid ID and address proof.
Also, as a known fact, there are two types of gas connections i.e. subsidized and non-subsidized gas connection, the former is available if one has linked one's connection with the unique 12-digit biometric ID aadhaar and is rather cheaper, while the non-subsidised rates are higher than the subsidized one. Consumers are allowed 12 subsidized cylinders per connection in a year.
