Illegal gas connections  to be cancelled soon

Food and Civil Supplies Minister Shobha Karandlaje told reporters here on Monday that of the 76 lakh gas connections in the State, about 30 lakh connections were illegal.

“The list of all the consumers with legal and illegal gas connections will be announced at the respective gas agencies in two or three days, following which the illegal connections will be cancelled,” she said.

The minister also hinted that those households with one RR number and multiple gas connections too would come under the scanner.

Presently, there are 10 lakh connections with one RR number and two or three connections. “We have not taken any final decision on the matter. Only after the illegal connections are cancelled, the department will look into the issue of multiple connections.”

She said the department would conclude the identification process of the total number of authentic APL and BPL card-holders in a week’s time. The new cards would be distributed after Dasara, she added.
