Gas agencies worry about DBT scheme in Jamshedpur

Although government has made January 1 as the deadline for transferring LPG subsidy into bank accounts of consumers in Jamshedpur, the reality is that gas agencies do not have Aadhar card data update of consumers with them. Government will also not want that subsidy benefits are provided to partial people. Prediction is that scheme could be delayed under such situation. On the grassroots level only 20-30% consumers have provided their Aadhar card details to gas agencies. Central government has taken the decision to link 235 more districts under the DBT-LPG subsidy scheme by January 2014. The 18 gas agencies in Jamshedpur have about 2.5 lakh consumers in total who have to be given subsidy benefits. Gas agencies operators believe that if the scheme is to be embodied then district administration should setup enrollment machines in their office. Distributors can then inform consumers to enroll for Aadhar card. A machine was setup in a gas agency in Adityapur through which many people got benefited. Gas distributors are also informing people through cylinder delivery boys.
