Scheme Promises Transparency, Easier Redressal
The LPG subsidy scheme, which will be relaunched in Mumbai on January 1, is expected to be more consumer-friendly .
The scheme was earlier launched in June 2013 but temporarily shelved. Now, the new scheme promises more “transparency , enhancement of subsidy advance and better redressal mechanisms,“ said Bharat Petroleum’s executive director (LPG) George Paul on Friday .For example, there is a mechanism to ensure that you get the subsidy amount transferred in 24 hours and you can track the process real time. There is also a round-the-clock toll-free helpline for any assistance.
The advance money the government will put in your account will be enhanced by Rs 133–from Rs 435 to Rs 568.
For those joining the scheme now, an Aadhaar card or number is no longer a must.“Aadhaar will be a preferred mode for joining the DBTL (Direct Benefit Transfer for LPG), but if you do not have the card, you can fill up a bank mandate form and link it to the subsidy mechanism,“ he said. “We are launching the scheme in Wardha and Amaravati among 54 districts across the country from Saturday . These districts had over 95% registrations for the Aadhaar number, which is why they have been included in the first phase. In the next phase, we will cover Mumbai (80% Aadhaar registrations) and other districts.“ In Mumbai, 44% Aadhaar card owners have already linked to the system, it is learnt.

One thought on “From January, expect LPG subsidy transfer in 24 hrs”
I received LPG refill on 05th Jan 2015 for which subsidy refund is yet to be credited to my Account against Adhaar No. 431181939390. Said Adhaar was linked with our Bank Account with (Oriental Bank) but in the status it is showing as INACTIVE. Number of times it has been got ACTIVE from Bank but still status remains unchanged. Now I have opened new Account in my name with the same Bank and handed over copy of Adhaar. Kindly look into the matter and let me know when the subsidy will be credited to my Account.
