Pan-India portable LPG connections now

The government on Wednesday launched pan-India portable liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) connections across oil marketing companies (OMC) and distributors.

“Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas M Veerappa Moily approved the launch of portability of LPG connections from today (Wednesday) onwards across oil marketing companies/distributors covering 480 districts in the country,” a release issued by the Oil Ministry said.

Under the facility, LPG consumers in these districts can switch to the distributor of their choice within a cluster of LPG distributors in the vicinity.

“This measure will bring a great relief to those LPG consumers who are unhappy with the services of their current distributor or want to move to an LPG distributor closer to their home,” the ministry said.

In October, the OMCs had together launched the LPG connection portability scheme in 24 districts in 13 states as a pilot project. With Wednesday’s launch, the coverage will be expanded to over 82 million LPG consumers in 480 districts.

“In order to facilitate LPG consumers to benefit from the portability scheme, the OMCs have made more than 1,400 clusters (of) distributors in over 480 districts with an average of almost four distributors per cluster to choose from,” the release said.
