An LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) connection is a necessity for every Indian household. Not only is it a safe and environmentally friendly cooking fuel source, but it is also subsidized by the government, making it affordable for all.
A recurrent reason listed by individuals who did not opt for an LPG connection was the difficulty in applying for a connection. However the three LPG suppliers, Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum have streamlined the process, making it more accessible by allowing online registration as well as cylinder booking. Additional features such as tracking of the cylinder and online payment have made it easier for individuals to book and register for LPG services.

Government Responds to CAG Audit, Justifies LPG Subsidy Savings
On Wednesday, The Government of India responded to the CAG audit explaining LPG subsidy savings. CAG audit stated that the most popular “Giveitup” campaign did not record savings of RS. 22000 crores as estimated. According to the audit, the government saved less than Rs. 2000 crores which is far from the projected savings. In response to this agitation, the government stated that they have successfully identified about 3 crore fake users and black marketers as on April, 2015. As these fake accounts are not registered under PAHAL, the government could suffer losses of about RS. 14 crores if each user avails 12 cylinders annually at the rate of Rs.369, which is the average LPG subsidy price currently. Following the same calculation, the estimated savings for the year 2015-2016 will be about RS. 6 crores.They declared that the subsidies were transferred to all beneficiaries registered under PAHAL, their online portal to track LPG consumers. The government also stated that the huge difference between the estimated savings and actual savings is due to bogus connections. They promised to work towards eliminating bogus connections completely which will increase LPG subsidy savings to the estimated amount eventually.
