LPG Gas Connections: Free gas connection for one crore people in the next two years LPG Gas Connections: One of the most important reforms brought by the Narendra Modi government is the Ujwala scheme. Under this, LPG is providing free gas connections across the country. The scheme, which is aimed at reducing household pollution and improving women’s health, has received international acclaim. The central government hopes to provide free connections to another crore people in the next two years and facilitate gas access to clean, 100 per cent fuel in the country. Speaking on the occasion, Oil Secretary Taruna Kapoor said in an interview that plans are afoot to facilitate the process without insisting on new LPG connections such as identity cards and place of residence. It also said it was considering the possibility of customers taking the cylinder at three dealers, depending on availability, instead of having to fill the gas at one dealer. Poor women were provided with a record 8 crore free LPG gas connections in just four years. Currently, the number of people consuming cooking gas has reached 29 crore across the country.
Crore people in the next two years ..
It is learned that the government has already stated in its budget introduced earlier last month that it will provide an additional one crore gas connections. He said the additional crore connections are expected to be completed in the next two years. Although no special allocation has been made in the 2021-22 budget, it will bear Rs 1,600 crore for the general energy subsidy allocation. He said that this brilliant scheme was introduced with the intention of giving free gas connection to the poor. The scheme was also praised by the International Health Organization (WHO) in 2018. Congratulations to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the following year. The government has launched the scheme as part of efforts to improve women’s health along with clean energy resources and environmental protection.
In addition, LPG can help reduce carbon dioxide and carbon emissions. Also Global Warming is working as the second largest contributor. India had the second highest number of deaths due to domestic and ambient air pollution before the launch of the Ujwala scheme. Now everyone is eligible to get LPG connection. However in practice cooking gas is difficult without proof of living space. Tarunkapur said they had asked the oil companies to remove such complaints. Dheema expressed that people who are temporarily moving from one city to another will be able to get LPG connection without any hassle and they will reach that stage. He, however, said that basic documents and a small identity would suffice for a gas connection.
