Aadhaar no longer linked with LPG ?

Great news on the gas-Aadhaar front. From March 10 onwards, domestic LPG consumers across the State will pay just the subsidised cost price of Rs. 441 per cylinder without depending on the Aadhaar card link up to the bank accounts for reimbursement of the remaining amount.

Clear directives

Clear directives de-linking the gas subsidy from Aadhaar card and bank accounts have reached the gas authorities here and distributors are being asked to start implementing the Aadhaar-less LPG scheme from Monday next onwards.

Those who have already booked for a cylinder and getting it before March 10 will, however, have to pay the non-subsidised price of Rs. 1,200.
