Oil PSUs are carrying out massive nationwide exercise to eliminate users having multiple connections at the same addresses.

The State-owned oil companies today said there is no ban on issuing new subsidised cooking gas (LPG) connections which will be issued after completion of multiple connection checks.

It is confirmed that new connections are being released after receipt of completed Know Your Customer (KYC) forms and multiple connection check, the companies said in a statement.

“Those who are desirous of availing new LPG connections are also requested to submit the details in the KYC format along with proof of identity and proof of address.”

Oil PSUs are carrying out a massive nationwide exercise to eliminate users having multiple connections at the same addresses.

They said following the government decision to cap supply of subsidised LPG to 6 cylinders per household in a year “all LPG consumers are eligible for three subsidised domestic cylinders up to March 31, 2013”.

There is no restriction on the number of domestic non-subsidised cylinders that consumers can avail beyond the three subsidised LPG refills to meet their genuine demand, they said.

From April 1, next year, LPG consumers can avail six domestic subsidised LPG refill cylinders in a financial year.

The oil firms said there was sufficient availability of both subsidised and non-subsidised LPG cylinders to meet requirements during the ensuing festive season.
