Hyderabad: Domestic LPG consumers in the city will have to submit their Aadhaar number and bank account details at the respective gas distribution agencies by February 15 to obtain subsidised cylinders.
Those who fail to do so will have to pay nearly Rs 1,000 to get a non-subsidised cylinder against the subsidised price of Rs 412.50. Commissioner of civil supplies Sunil Sharma on Wednesday said that the Aadhaar number was mandatory to obtain subsidised cylinders.
Speaking to reporters here, he said, “It’s the decision taken by the Centre to implement Aadhaarlinked direct transfer of cash subsidy scheme in selected districts across the country. It will be implemented initially in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts.“
