According to the government, 1.75 crore families in the state will be given the benefit of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana. Of these, in the first phase, Aadhaar authentication beneficiaries will be given free cylinders. After that, as the Aadhaar authentication of the beneficiaries gets done, they will be given free cylinders under this scheme. Under the scheme, the beneficiary will have to purchase a 14.2 kg cylinder by making the payment himself, after five days the subsidy will be sent to his Aadhaar authenticated account. This scheme will be applicable only on one connection issued under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana.
Central government has also given relief
From the last week of August to the beginning of this month, the Central Government has also given relief twice under the Ujjwala scheme. In the last days of August, the central government had reduced the price of gas cylinder by flat Rs 200. At that time a subsidy of Rs 200 was given on the Ujjwala scheme. After further reduction of Rs 200, the price of gas cylinder for them was reduced by Rs 400. Recently the government has increased the subsidy of Ujjwala scheme by Rs 100. This means that the subsidy which was Rs 200 has now become Rs 300. This means that the gas cylinder available under the Ujjwala scheme has become cheaper by Rs 500.
