Uttarakhand Government becomes strict on LPG connections

Around 10 per cent multiple cooking gas connections with individual customers have been cancelled in the Dehradun district. Uttarakhand LPG Association spokesperson and Uttaranchal Gas Agency owner Tanveer Singh said this.
The gas agencies have started conducting verification of customers’ connections after issuance of direction from the Indian Oil Company Limited officers.
Customers were instructed to submit declaration forms provided by the agency in which they have to acknowledge that the IOCL will be within its rights if it discontinues LPG supply, forfeit security deposit or impose penalty if any information provided by customers is not true and incomplete and also in the event of any violation of Government regulation related to the supply and distribution of LPG.
The agencies have been directed to inform to the department of food and civil supply about the LPG connections being cancelled.
He further said that customers are being assured that there is no need to procure multiple connections because agency will provide them cooking gas through home delivery within 21 days of booking.
Jagdamba Indane Gas agency officials said that around 10 per cent customers have verified their connections out of which around 15 multiple connections have been cancelled so far. The employees who are deployed to provide gas through home delivery to the customers have been directed to provide them consumer information sheet.
Recently, Food and Civil Supply Secretary Subardhan had directed the representatives of the oil companies to cancel multiple cooking gas connections with individual customers and to ensure that each customer has procured only one gas connection.
