LPG Subsidy

PAHAL DBTL Scheme | Join PAHAL LPG Subsidy


Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas initially launched PAHAL DBTL Scheme on 1st June 2013 and covered 291 districts. In the beginning consumers who wished to enroll for the PAHAL DBTL Scheme were required to have AADHAAR card. But after reviewing the scheme response the government realized the difficulties faced by many consumers who did not have AADHAAR card. The modified PAHAL DBTL Scheme was relaunched on 15th November 2014 where the consumers now have 2 options to get LPG gas subsidy.

In option 1 the consumers who have AADHAAR card can enroll with their AADHAAR card and in option 2 the consumers who do not have AADHAAR card can enroll for LPG gas subsidy without AADHAAR card. Once the consumer joins PAHAL DBTL Scheme with or without AADHAAR card and is ready to receive LPG subsidy benefits directly in his/her bank account, he/she is known as CTC (Cash Transfer Complaint).
