Refill Demand under PMUY

Under Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana(PMUY), a target to provide 8 crore new LPG connections was fixed and has been achieved in September, 2019. Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have issued 1306.87 lakh LPG refills to PMUY beneficiaries under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package(PMGKP) till August, 2020. State/UT-wise details of LPG refill delivered under PMGKP are at annexure.

OMCs have transferred an amount of Rs. 9670.41 crore to PMUY beneficiaries under PMGKP for buying LPG refills.

Average refill consumption of PMUY beneficiaries for the year 2019-20 was 3.01 cylinder of 14.2 kg. Adoption and use of LPG on sustained basis by a beneficiary of PMUY beneficiary household depends on several factors which include food habits, size of household, cooking habits, price of LPG, easy availability of free firewood and cow dung etc.

OMCs have reported that the executives of OMCs are not forcing the distributors to deliver the refill without the requirement of customer or low demand from them.

This information was given by the Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas Shri  Dharmendra Pradhan in the Lok Sabha today in a written reply.
