ANSWER

MINISTER OF PETROLEUM AND NATURAL GAS (SHRI DHARMENDRA PRADHAN)
(a) State/UT and year-wise details of LPG connections released under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana(PMUY) are at Annexure. 

(b) to (d) OMCs have reported that nearly 86% of PMUY beneficiaries who are atleast one year old have returned for the second refill. The use of LPG by PMUY beneficiary household depends on several factors which include food habits, cooking habits, availability and accessibility to LPG, price of LPG, free availability of firewood, cow dung etc. In order to encourage the PMUY beneficiaries to adopt and use LPG on sustained basis, OMCs have been pursuing following measures:–
(i) offering swap facility i.e. to provide small 5 kg cylinder against 14.2 kg cylinder as per the requirement.
(ii) conducting Pradhan Mantri LPG Panchayat to educate beneficiaries on the benefits of sustained use of LPG and its safe usage. 
(iii) launching audio visual media campaign to spread awareness on advantages of use of LPG. 
(iv) targeted SMS campaign to reach to beneficiaries who have not comeback for refill.
(v) display campaign by way of banners, standees and hoardings at public places.
