HP Gas Aadhar Bank Linking
HP Gas Linking Requirements
Very first requirement to get subsidy benefits for LGP gas is to get your Aadhar card enrolled if not yet done, Every local station where you stay has number of centres who will help you to get your individual Aadhaar. We are not sure, yet if the card is under process and not received, the online version of Aadhaar will also do (Confirm with bank and HP service centre in Mumbai).
You need to have a public or private bank’s saving account. Kindly note that initially it was said that gas owner needs a nationalized bank account like SBI, Central bank etc to get this benefit, but as of now any bank account can be linked for this process. A very IMP POINT to be noted here is the Account should be in the name of the owner of HP LPG gas, i.e the same name should be their on HP DGCC book (The Blue Book). If you have a joint saving account with some other family member, then the primary account holder should be the gas owner.
Kindly note that yearly cap of 9 gas cylinders per owner is the limit set for subsidy, Above 9 cylinders consumer will have to pay full MRP price.
