LPG Transparency Portal begins functioning to ensure in delivery of domestic LPG cylinders
Petroleum and Natural Gas Ministry launched a LPG Portal aimed at ensuring transparency in the delivery of domestic LPG cylinders to the consumers.
This step is expected to materialize into a potent tool for social audit for all domestic LPG supplies. Civil Society can also access LPG distribution information from this portal and can report incongruities and register their feedback on the irregularities in supply. The portal is supposed to make all the stakeholders responsible, thus providing an impartial and equitable distribution of the subsidized LPG fuel. Around 14 crore households across India living in urban, semi-urban and even rural India are estimated to benefit from this initiative.
One can access the LPG Transparency portal via the official website of the Ministry www.petroleum.nic.in.
