Those who have still not linked Aadhaar with their LPG connections need to do it before September 30, as their parked subsidy amount (with banks) for the period between July and September will lapse after September end.

As per earlier instructions of the Union ministry of petroleum and natural gas, people have to buy cylinder at the non-subsidi sed (market) rate and later have to get sub sidy credited into their acco unt.

For this, they had to either link their bank account numbers or Aadhaar number to their LPG connection number to get the subsidy credited into their account.

From July 2016, the ministry has mandated linking connections with Aadhaar. People who had linked earlier need not worry but those who had linked only bank account numbers need to get Aadhaar linking too. UP chapter’s president of All India LPG Distributors’ Federation, D P Singh, said, “There are about 9.8 lakh LPG consumers in city , of which around 20% subscribers have yet not linked Aadhaar with their connections.“
