It has been reported in newspapers that the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has recently issued orders making the Unique Identification Number (UID) under the Aadhaar project must for availing LPG refills. Through this move, the government aims to prevent multiple connections and also in preventing availing of LPG cylinders in other names. This has become necessary since the government is spending heavily on subsidising the domestic LPG cylinders. This move will also increase the enrolment for Aadhaar, which most of the people are not keen to avail.
It is expected that consumers will be given reasonable time to comply with the directive of the government.
