Pithoragarh, September 4
LPG connections, which are not verified by October 20 this year, will be blocked by the gas agencies concerned and consumers without verification will not be issued gas cylinders anymore, Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam (KMVN) sources said.
“If any consumer does not have an Aadhar card, a PAN card, a ration card or receipts of electricity and telephone bills, he/she can verify his or her identity and other particulars for the LPG connection by an affidavit signed by any officer of the state government so that the black marketeering of the cooking gas could be stopped,” said Prakash Chandra, General Manager, LPG distribution in the KMVN.
Prakash said in the Kumaon region there were only 6,691 commercial LPG connections of the 5 lakh connections, but more people were using them for commercial purpose. This has created the shortage of supply in the region. “If the verification process is successful, the defaulters will be traced,” added the GM.
Prakash said his department was trying to issue a dress code for all LPG distributors in the region. “The proposal has been approved by the KMVN management and it will cost of Rs 9 lakh per annum,” he added.
