HEY all indians you check here lpg subsidy ………The DBTL scheme was actually launched on 1st June 2013 and it covered 291 districts.
As many customers faced problems in linking their Aadhar card, the Government launched the modified version of scheme keeping in mind the issues faced earlier. The new DBTL scheme was launched on 15th November 2014 for the 54 districts of the country.
For the remaining districts, the scheme has started on the first day of new year that is 1st January 2015.
Not only the government made some significant changes in the scheme, they renamed it to ” Pratyaksh Hanstantarit Labh or PAHAL“.
What is LPG subsidy?
Subsidized LPG is provided largely for domestic use(use in house), but institutional use is permitted for Government schools, hospitals, canteens, police stations, etc. Subsidized LPG cylinders are red in colour and contain 14.2kg of LPG, whereas commercial LPG cylinders are purple and contain 19kg of LPG.
Domestic Consumers are entitled to nine subsidised LPG cylinders. The government will send the cooking-gas subsidy directly to the bank accounts of subscribers as a part of extension of Direct Benefit Transfer(DBT). Annually, this would amount to about Rs 4,000 per year by the government to each household as a cash transfer……….
For example, Suppose i am a resident of one of the Districts where scheme was launched on 15th November 2014. Now from 15th November 2014 to 14th February is the time which will be called as Grace period. In this time period i will be eligible to get cylinder at the Subsidized rate but i need to join the scheme with in these three months.
Another scenario in the same example is that if i didn’t join the scheme till 14th February 2015. Now in this case i will enter into the parking period. The government is generous enough to give me extra three months(till 14th May 2015) but i will get the LPG at market price. Once i join the scheme before 14th May i will be considered as CTC by government and all the subsidy will be transferred to my account…………
