Consumers to get 5 kg LPG cylinder from petrol pumps  in Bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar: Good news for gas consumers of Bhubaneswar who very often face ordeal for getting LPG cylinder as Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas is set to enable the LPG consumers to excercise greater choice, freedom  and convenience through sale of market priced 5 kg cylinders through select petrol pumps in major cities including Bhubaneswar and portability of LPG connection across Oil marketing companies.

The first initiative allows sale of 5 kg LPG cylinders at market price with minimal paperwork through Company Owned Retail Outlets (Petrol Stations).

This will be a boon to migratory population such as students, IT professionals, BPO employees and persons with odd duty timings as it would provide them the flexibility to pick up cylinders and obtain subsequent refills at time of their choice as Petrol Stations are open for longer hours.  

This scheme is being launched in the cities of Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai and Bangalore on a pilot basis through select Retail Outlets.

The second initiative is the Inter Company LPG Portability Scheme. Presently, an LPG consumer is attached to a distributor and cannot change his distributor even if he is unhappy with the service of the distributor or the oil marketing company.

Under this portability scheme, a consumer can now opt for the distributor of his choice within a cluster of LPG distributors in the vicinity and across the oil companies. The consumers will be able to see the service ratings of  all the distributors in their cluster and choose the one they want based on service levels.

To make life of consumer easier the option is registered electronically on the website of the OMC to which the consumer is presently attached. Electronic tracking of the potability request and closure is in place to ensure a consumer does not have any difficulty to move to a distributor of his choice.  

This will usher in improvement in consumer service by the distributors as it will bring in competition in the cluster of distributors and bring choice to consumers who want to change their LPG distributor within or across the Oil company or want to move to a distributor closer to his home.
