Ujjwala Hpcl:Ujjwala beneficiary hp gas

 In India, the poor have limited access to cooking gas (LPG). The spread of LPG cylinders has been mainly in urban and semi-urban areas, with coverage mostly among middle class and affluent households. But fossil fuel-based cooking carries serious health risks. According to WHO estimates, around 500,000 deaths have been attributed to contaminated cooking fuel in India alone. Most of these premature deaths were due to non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer. Indoor air pollution is also responsible for a large number of acute respiratory illnesses in young children. According to experts, lighting an open fire in the kitchen is equivalent to lighting 400 cigarettes in an hour.


Applicant ( woman only) must have attained 18 years of age. There should not be any other LPG connection from any OMC in the same household
