In an effort to make it easier for new gas connection, re-filling and delivery of household cylinders, the Government has appointed common service centres to provide such facilities through Digital Seva Portal. Public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs) and common service centres on Saturday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to facilitate these services through three-lakh CSCs across the country.
Retail marketing of petroleum products is done by OMCs which include Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL). They have agreed to provide the benefits of Ujjawla connection, re-filling of new connection and other services through CSCs – a last mile access at consumers’ doorstep.
CSCs will help the beneficiary to scan/upload his/her KYC document for verification of his/her identity for new booking connection. Beneficiaries can also collect the gas cylinder from their nearby CSC. The service centres will also provide requisite information about the scheme and promote it among citizens so that maximum number of beneficiaries can avail the benefit. Read More
