Aadhaar Not Compulsory For LPG Subsidy

Aadhaar Not Compulsory For LPG Subsidy 

SUBSIDISED LPG cylinders can be purchased without having an Aadhaar account, the Government informed the Lok Sahha on Friday.
A clarification on delinking Aadhaar account from disbursal of subsidised LPG cylinders would be issued within a week. Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Veerappa Moily said during Question Hour. "A clarification will be issued within a week." he said.
As far as Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) is concerned. Cabinet has decided to delink Aadhar account from disbursal of subsidised LPG cylinders. Now, subsidised cylinders can be purchased   without   Aadhaar account. Moily said. He said there have been some problems in DBT programme, mainly related to banks, which have been given Rs 435 per cylinder (for subsidy) which is not enough since the subsidized price of one cylinder has increased to Rs 700. He also emphasised that the Government has not increased the price of subsidised cylinders for consumers. Under  DBT.   about  4.86  crore accounts have been made and around 2.06 crore households have received subsidized cylinders. Regarding Know Your Customer (KYC) norms for LPG connections, the Minister said the government has already issued clarifications regarding multiple connections and would liberally look into the matter if required.
