The Union government has once again cleared the doubts of LPG gas cylinder customers on subsidy issue. The government has made it clear that Aadhaar number is not mandatory for transfer of subsidy amount of LPG cylinder. Further, it has clarified that the option of providing a bank account is also available under the direct benefit transfer of LPG (DBTL). Union Petroleum Minister has stated in the Lok Sabha that consumers can avail the subsidy scheme by two means either giving details of Aadhar number or gas consumer number to bank asking them to add in their bank account details. Secondly, giving bank account number to gas agent will also serve the purpose of subsidy.
