LPG consumers exhorted to avail benefits under PAHAL

0 54

JAMMU: The Modified Direct Benefit Transfer of LPG (DBTL) has been implemented in Jammu and Kashmir from 1st January 2015 and the LPG consumers covered under the scheme can now receive subsidy in their bank account.
The subsidy can be availed by linking Aadhar Number to the bank account number and to the LPG consumer number. However, in the absence of Aadhar card subsidy can be received in the bank account by presenting bank account information (bank account holder name/ account number/16digit IFSC Code). In the PAHAL (DBTL) district(s), domestic LPG cylinders will be sold to domestic LPG consumers at market determined price (does not include subsidy) from the date of launch of the scheme and the subsidy applicable on LPG cylinder will then be transferred to the consumer for each subsidised cylinder delivered (up to the cap) as per his entitlement.
Non-Cash Transfer Complaint (CTC) consumers would be allowed three months from the date of launch of PAHAL (DBTL) to become CTC. During this period such consumers will receive their entitlement of subsidised cylinders at the then applicable subsidised retail selling price. After the grace period of three months, all non-CTC LPG consumers will get an additional three month Parking Period, during which the sale will happen at Market Determined Price for all LPG consumers.
But for non-CTC consumers the total cash on the sale made to such consumers (as per their entitlement) shall be held back with the respective OMC to be transferred to the LPG consumers’ bank account in case consumer becomes CTC anytime during the parking period. In case consumer does not become CTC during this parking period, the parked funds will lapse and consumer shall become ineligible to receive the parked funds and sale will continue at market determined price till consumer becomes CTC.
After the expiry of the grace period of three months, and thereafter an additional parking period of three months, all non-CTC consumers will receive cylinders at market determined price and will not be entitled to total cash until they become CTC. When non-CTC consumers become CTC beyond the parking period they will be eligible to get one time permanent advance and total cash entitlement on balance subsidised cylinders in that financial year.
It is pertinent to mention that a one-time advance will be provided to every CTC consumer joining PAHAL (DBTL).
