Learn here how to link your bank account (with or without Aadhar card) to LPG connection and start receiving the subsidy on cooking gas directly into bank account.
Direct Benefit Transfer of LPG (DBTL) is an initiative taken by the Indian Government to prevent black-marketing of cylinders, by providing subsidies directly to consumers through their bank accounts. The scheme was first launched on 1st of June 2013 and it covered 291 districts across the country. Initially it was compulsory for consumers to have an Aadhar number for availing the subsidy, but not anymore. The government has modified the scheme, and now LPG consumers can join DBTL to receive subsidy into bank account even if they don’t have Aadhar Card.
The modified scheme has already been launched in 54 districts on 15th November 2014 and will be rolled out to rest of the country from 1st of January 2015. Under this modified scheme, consumers will get one-time permanent advance in their account before buying the first LPG cylinder at market price. They’ll receive subsidy as per their annual entitlement of subsidized cylinders. Till the time consumers enroll for the scheme, they’ll get cylinders at subsidized price for three months (15 November 2014 to 14 February 2015) and at market price for next three months, but the subsidy due will be given to them on joining the scheme within these three months i.e. before 14 May 2015. With effect from 15 May 2015, all LPG consumers will be forced to purchase cylinders at market price and only those who enroll the scheme will receive the one-time advance and cash subsidy.
Those who had joined the DBTL scheme earlier and had received the advance/subsidy in their accounts need not do anything again. Remaining all, are required to enroll and link their bank accounts with LPG connection to receive the subsidy. The guide given below will help you link your bank account and Aadhar card to LPG Connection.
