LPG is one of the ‘clean’ cooking fuel with present consumer base of 17cr in the country and present coverage is 60% of the households. Government of India is committed to increase LPG coverage in the country to 75% of the household. Present, LPG distributor network has more than 17000 distributors spread having presence in both Rural and Urban areas of the Country. Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India is of the view that there is a need to increase of LPG coverage in the rural areas considering the benefits of LPG in terms of health and environment. Ministry recognizes that availability, accessibility and affordability of LPG are the key factors to increase the LPG coverage in rural areas. This can be done with bringing in new distributorships aligning with challenges encountered with respect of making them available to the last mile.

Therefore, Ministry solicits suggestions/inputs from citizens on the new model of distributorship particularly for the areas such as Hilly/Desert/Densely forested/other difficult locations. Also, to suggest names of locations which require establishing new distributorship.

The extant Guidelines for Selection of Distributorship is available on

All sansad and vidhayak aadarsh gram should have 100% Aadhar and LPG connection.
The best way to implement is to remove from service the 10%worst performing food officers of the state w.r.t. above target.

Govt may think of doing away with subsidized gas to all those whose annual income is more than 10 lakhs per annum.This may increase the LPG coverage to the needy.

I think India should start providing LPG through pipelines instead of cylinders so that people dont have to worry about cylinders and only pay the bill. This is already present in some places like mumbai. By this way people will not have to worry about buying or applying for new connection and instead just have to pay bill. This will readily help more coverage because people have to go through many formalities just to get a connection.

India have to focus on solar power. if we can start to promote solar power then it will be save lot of natural resources like gas... initially it will be little costly but for the point of view in longer benefits it will be important...

Dear Sir,
We have observed that many restaurants and street vendors are still using domestic LPG cylinders for commercial purposes. To avoid this misuse of subsidised domestic cylinders, I request to initiate the process of coding of each LPG cylinders. This could enable to link each alloted/distributed cylinder with the unique customer number.So that during inspection this faulty can be easily identified and brought under the ambit of this unlawful practices.
