KYC Form for Gas Connection

Updated on - 26 Oct 2021

When it comes to getting a gas connection for the house you will have two choices. The first is to approach one of the many agencies like Hindustan Petroleum HP, Indane, Bharat Gas, etc. The second option would be to go to a private distributor. The main advantage you will have with the first option is that the cost is going to be considerably cheaper since companies like these are well regulated and are also party to government schemes to provide you with cooking gas at affordable rates. They also carry the advantage of well-formed networks of services that allow you to transfer connections from one place to another anywhere within the country, without too much of a headache. But, before you go ahead and start booking gas cylinders through these providers, you will have to complete certain formalities. One of these formalities is the KYC (Know Your Customer) details. Here is what you can expect from the KYC process.

KYC Form for LPG Gas

The KYC form for all gas connections remains the same with very few variations. The purpose of the form is to collect information about the customer so as to verify it and ensure that the person is actually eligible to receive the services of the gas agency. To that end the form collects the following information:

Personal details about you including your name, photographs, age and the names of your closest relatives.

It also collections contact details like your residential address, phone numbers and email addresses.

It will also collect information about documents that you submit to support the information mentioned in the form.

Filling Up KYC Form for LPG Connection

There are certain things that you need to keep in mind when filling up KYC forms. Here is how you can go about it:

  • Starting from the top, ensure that you provide a recent passport-size photograph for the form.
  • You may be asked to sign the photograph once it is attached to the form. Do so by signing the paper while letting your signature spill over the photograph as well.
  • In the first section you will have to provide your own details like your full name and your date of birth. You may also have to enter the Gas Consumer Number if you have been allotted one already.
  • The next part will collect the names of certain close relations like fathers, mothers and spouses.
  • The next part is where contact details in the form of address, phone numbers and email ids, will be collected.
  • If you are submitting documents in support of your identity, you will have to fill in details about said documents in the next section.
  • If you have a ration card, then you can mention details of that as well in the next section.
  • Once all the details have been filled in, go over them once to ensure that there are no mistakes in them. Once you are assured that there are none, you can attest the KYC form at the bottom.
  • Once the form is submitted, the agency officials will sign the acknowledgment at the bottom of the form and detach it from the rest of the form for you to keep.

KYC Application Form for Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana

While the regular KYC forms are used for the purpose of obtaining a new gas connection, there is also a KYC form needed to participate in specific government schemes. One such example is the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana. This is a scheme that aims at helping households that are below the poverty line gain access to clean cooking gas. The KYC form that is used for this scheme is slightly different even though it collects similar information about the applicant. In the case of this form, the form will ask for details of the members of the family, where it will consider a unit where members over the age of 18 years stay and use the same kitchen. This form will also collect information of the cylinder that the applicants want and if they want a stove to go with the cylinder or not. The documents and procedures still remain the same.

FAQs on Gas KYC Form:

  1. Where do I get the KYC form from?

    You can get KYC forms either from the distributors for a particular gas company or from their website.

  2. Do I have to mention all the close relatives asked for?

    No, you can either mention your father or a spouse. You don’t have to mention both.

  3. Can I get a gas connection without KYC?

    No. Since KYC is mandatory, it is a formality that has to be fulfilled in order to get a gas connection.

  4. Can I use the same KYC documents for a new connection?

    No. If you use the same documents for a new connection while an old one is active, the chances are that the application will be rejected since one household cannot have more than one active connection.

  5. What happens if my KYC documents don’t match the information on the form?

    While this might be a rare occurrence, it is best to ensure that the documents you submit bear the same names, photos and addresses as mentioned on the KYC form. If the details don’t match, the agency might not approve the application.

  6. Can I apply for the KYC again if it fails once?

    Yes you can apply for the KYC again, provided you ensure that the correct details and supporting documents are being submitted.

  7. If the forms are the same, can I use the form from one company to apply for another company’s connections?

    No, this would not be advisable. There could be possibilities where KYC forms, though similar, may bear the markings or serial numbers of the companies that issued them. It is best to get the KYC forms from the company you want the gas connection from.

  8. Is the gas consumer number mandatory?

    It is mandatory only for those who already have a consumer number issued to them. If it is the first time you plan on getting a connection then you don’t have to quote it.
