Homemaker Gets 5Croreth LPG


Speaker, Lok Sabha, Sumitra Mahajan, today handed over 5 croreth LPG connection under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) to Takrdiran of Delhi in the Parliament House.

The Speaker while acknowledging the vision of  Prime Minister Narendra Modi and leadership of Dharmendra Pradhan Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas, appreciated the collective efforts of the officials of Ministry and the Oil Marketing Companies in achieving the target of 5 crore.

Further, shared advantages of using LPG in terms of health benefits, time saved and ensuring safety of women. Government led by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) on 1 May, 2016 and it is implemented by Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas through its Oil Marketing Companies i.e, IOC, BPCL and HPCL through their network of distributors across the country.

Through PMUY, initially, 5 crore BPL households were targeted for providing deposit free LPG connections to BPL households by 31March,2019. 

In a record time of 28 months for its launch, PMUY achieved the initial target of providing 5 crores LPG connection to BPL households. In the current year, considering the huge success of the Scheme, target was revised to 8 crore with budgetary allocation of Rs 12,800 crore.

States of Uttar Pradesh (87 lakh), West Bengal (67 lakh), Bihar (61 lakh), Madhya Pradesh (45 lakh), Rajasthan(37 lakh) and Odisha (30 lakh) have accounted for nearly 65% of the connections provided. 47% of the beneficiaries are from the weaker sections of the society i.e., SC/STs.

PMUY has been recognised by World Health Organisation as one of the decisive intervention by the Government to address the Indoor Air Pollution which accounts for nearly 10 lakh deaths in a year in the country.

PMUY aims at providing clean-cooking fuel to the poor households, which are otherwise vulnerable to various health hazards associated with indoor air pollution and bringing in qualitative charges in the living standards. PMUY is under implementation in the all the States/UTs.

Beneficiaries are identified through Socio-Economic Caste Census List-2011 and in such cases where names are not covered under SECC list, beneficiaries are identified from seven categories.

Those includes SC/ST households, beneficiaries of PMAY(Gramin), Antyodaya Anna Yojana, Most Backward Classes, Forest Dwellers, Resident of Islands/River Islands and Tea Garden & Ex-tea Garden Tribes.
