FOR OPT IN
Under the modified scheme, the LPG consumer can now receive subsidy in his bank account by two methods. Such a consumer will be called CTC (Cash Transfer Compliant) once he joins the scheme and is ready to receive subsidy in the bank account. The two options are:
Option I (Primary): Wherever Aadhaar number is available it will remain the medium of cash transfer. Thus, an LPG consumer who has an Aadhaar Number has to link it to the bank account number and to the LPG consumer number.
Option II (Secondary): If LPG consumer does not have an Aadhaar number, then he can directly receive subsidy in his bank account without the use of Aadhaar number. This option which has now been introduced in the modified scheme ensures that LPG subsidy is not denied to an LPG consumer on account of lack of Aadhaar number. In this option,
Either consumer can
Present bank account information (bank account holder name /account number /IFSC code) to the LPG distributor for capture in LPG database
Present LPG consumer information (17 digit LPG consumer ID) to his bank
LPG Consumers who are already CTC prior to launch on PAHAL (DBTL)
Domestic LPG Consumer who had already joined the earlier PAHAL (DBTL) scheme by linking their Aadhaar to bank and LPG database don’t need to take fresh action for receiving subsidy as the subsidy will be transferred to their bank accounts via Aadhaar based on the previous seeding. Such CTC consumers cannot exercise Option II above.
FOR OPT OUT (Give It UP)
Our Hon’ble Prime Minister has formally launched ‘GiveItUp’ movement on 27th of March 2015 in Delhi and appealed to all countrymen who can afford it, to come forward and give-up their LPG subsidy.
Every consumer who gives up LPG subsidy will help to provide LPG connection to a BPL family. This will truly be a gift of good health to the women and children of these poor families who suffer most from health issues caused by indoor pollution by using fuels like coal, fire wood, crop waste etc.
