Tribals dropping out of much touted Ujjwala LPG scheme
| Saturday | 12th January, 2019
“It is true that the Ujjwala Scheme was aimed at cutting down delivery of highly subsidised kerosene to BPL families.
That means that even if LPG is used only minimally, the household would require a refill of the cylinder in about three months.
As part of the scheme, the government waived connection charges and provided the connection (along with gas stove and a cylinder) at Rs 1,600.
The more easily accessible and cheaper fuel is wood gathered from jungles.
At the same time, the scheme was to ensure a smokeless house that would be important for the health of women, who mostly do the cooking,” the officer said.
