Govt launches LPG Transparency Portal

Agencies
New Delhi, Jun 22
Petroleum Minister Jaipal Reddy today launched an ‘LPG Portal’ that will host data on the last mile delivery of domestic LPG cylinders supplied by PSU Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs), to nearly 14 crore households in the country.

For decades the OMCs supplied LPG at the doorstep.
“To empower LPG users through a public accountability system, Indian Oil, BPCL and HPCL have now introduced through a web-platform, complete visibility of the LPG cylinder transactions to all citizens across the country,” an official spokesman said today.
The LPG Transparency portal can be accessed through the official website of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas —www.petroleum.nic.in.
Access is also available through respective OMC websites— www.indane.co.in; www.ebharatgas.com and www.hindustanpetroleum.com.
Consumers can now know their individual pattern of LPG usage, LPG booking status, LPG refill history or request for surrender of their connection, highest consumption consumers, subsidy availed etc.
The information on the portal can also be sorted by consumer number, consumer name and by distributors’ name easily.
This initiative is expected to emerge as a powerful tool for social audit for all domestic LPG supplies.
To enable the OMCs to improve their services, the portal also emables consumers to rate the services of their LPG distributor.
Nearly 14 crore households across India covering urban, semi-urban and even rural India are expected to benefit from this initiative.
