(a) to (c) Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) was launched in 2016 to provide deposit free LPG connections to women members of poor households and the target to provide 8 crore LPG connections under the Scheme was achieved in September, 2019, 7 months ahead of target date of completion of March, 2020. PMUY phase-2 (Ujjwala 2.0) was launched in August, 2021 and Oil Marketing Companies(OMCs) have released 1.34 crore LPG connections under Ujjwala 2.0 as on 01.07.2022.

Under PMUY, beneficiaries can choose the type of their connection from the options of Single Bottle Connection of 14.2 Kg cylinder, Single Bottle Connection of 5 Kg Cylinder, Double Bottler Connection (DBC) of 5 Kg Cylinder and swap their 14.2 Kg cylinder connection with 5 Kg connection and vice versa. Further, OMCs ensure that LPG distributors maintain adequate stock of LPG cylinders, so that the LPG refills are home delivered at the customer premises within 48 hrs of booking.
