LPG consumers can file KYC form till Nov 15
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Oct 30: The government has extended by 15 days the deadline for filling the Know Your Customer (KYC) form by LPG consumers to November 15.
In a nationwide exercise to weed out multiple or ghost connections, the state-owned oil firms had previously asked their domestic cooking gas (LPG) distributors to collect and verify duly filled KYC forms from the consumers by October 31.
"We have now decided to extend the deadline by 15 days to November 15," a senior Oil Ministry official said here. The drive to weed out multiple connections at same address follow last month's government decision to cap supply of subsidised LPG to six cylinders per household in a year.
The official said oil firms are implementing the policy of 'one household, one connection' and have asked consumers to voluntarily give up additional connections.
Multiple LPG connections in the 'same name and at the same address' as well as 'husband and wife' owning connections at the same address would be summarily disconnected.
In case of multiple connections at same address under different names, distributors have been asked to collect KYC forms to verify genuine users.
Consumers in the KYC form have to gives all the necessary details like name, date of birth, father's name, mother's name, spouse name, complete address with pin-code and also an optional information about bank details. They have to submit self-attested photocopies of address and ID proof along with the filled in form.
The official said transfer of LPG connection to family members during lifetime would be permitted, subject to certain conditions. Also, transfer of LPG connections to legal heir in case of death of consumers would henceforth be done through a self- declaration by the next of kin and death certificate. Previously, legal heir/succession certificate was required.
"All LPG consumers are eligible for three subsidised domestic cylinders during the remaining part of the current year ending March 31, 2013," the official said.
