As on 20.06.2019, Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have released more than 7.23 crore LPG connections under Pradhan Mantri UjjwalaYojana (PMUY).

OMCs have reported that till May 2019, 1.67 crore and 1.45 crore PMUY beneficiaries have purchased the refills 4 and 5 times respectively. OMCs have also reported that nearly 86% of PMUY beneficiaries who are atleast one year old have returned for the second refill.

OMCs have reported that surveys/studies have been conducted by some Agencies/Institutes/Organizations involving PMUY beneficiaries. 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, availability of free firewood, cow dung etc.

This Information was given by the Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Shri Dharmendra Pradhan in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
