The Indian government allows citizens to receive 12 LPG cylinders every year at subsidized rates.
Under the Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme, the subsidy is transferred directly to your bank account.
Linking Aadhaar is mandatory for it as it ensures a smooth process.
There are several ways to link Aadhaar to your LPG connection. Here's a complete guide.
Linking Aadhaar to LPG connection
Linking Aadhaar via call or SMS
To link Aadhaar to LPG connection, you can simply call up your provider and follow instructions. Every provider - Indane, HP and Bharat Gas - have their own helplines and different numbers for different districts.
Alternatively, you could send an SMS instead.
