Gas supply cap makes consumer card vital

 Consumers of LPG (cooking gas) who do not have their “domestic gas consumer card (DGCC) booklet” with their respective serial and consumer numbers entered by the distributor, should obtain a new booklet, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) said on Tuesday on behalf of all the oil marketing companies (OMC).

Stating that the “capping of subsidised LPG cylinders” scheme (up to six LPG refill cylinders per financial year) announced by the Centre will take effect from April 1, 2013, the IOC, representing the OMCs, issued a press release here asking consumers who have either lost or misplaced their booklet to get in touch with their distributor concerned “to obtain a new DGCC booklet, duly stamped and signed by the distributor after paying the applicable charges.”

The serial number of the “DGCC book” must be entered by the distributor in his system, said R K Arora, the State-level co-ordinator for oil industry for Karnataka and the State’s IOC executive director.

Consumers have to produce the DGCC booklet to the delivery boy while receiving the refill cylinder, he said in the release.

The delivery boy will enter the details of delivery and affix his signature on the DGCC booklet.

The consumers have to check the entry and sign the DGCC book. They also have to sign the copy of the cash memo and hand over the same to the delivery man, IOC said.
