Direct Benefit Transfer for LPG Subsidy (DBTL), now re-launched as PAHAL DBTL, was a noteworthy step towards strengthening the LPG subsidy mechanism in India. The DBTL can ensure reduction in diversion of domestic LPG to commercial use. Since bank accounts or Aadhaar card numbers are linked to the LPG database, it can identify ghost connections, consequently decreasing de-duplication and subsidy burden. The Prime Minister Ujjwala Yojana was released on March 2016 and the specific details and its effects on existing schemes are not yet clear. However, it is a significant step for targeted subsidy provision of LPG to promote use of clean and sustainable cooking fuels.

PAHAL DBTL Scheme 2016 Current coverage by OMCs’ LPG distributors caters to 97% of the geographical blocks of the country. The public sector OMCs aim to increase the national LPG coverage to 75% with a minimum 60% coverage in each state and at least one distributor in each block by 2019. The DBTL scheme was first launched in June 2013 with a mandatory requirement of Aadhaar card to avail benefits. However, the scheme was later reviewed to take in to account the difficulties borne by consumers and re-launched in 2014. The modified PAHAL scheme has two options for consumers to receive subsidy. Once the consumer joins the scheme, he/she is referred to as the Cash Transfer Compliant (CTC).

Option 1 (Primary): Consumers who have Aadhaar numbers are required to link it with their bank accounts and their 17-digit LPG consumer ID.

Option 2 (Secondary): If consumers do not possess Aadhaar number, they have the option of either linking their present bank account number with their LPG consumer ID or providing account details to their LPG distributor.
