I am a Bharat gas consumer (No.3412118034).I have submitted my aadhaar card (no.4778 8043 3152) to the LPG distributer and my bank (BOI).As per the website of ebharatgas – under Consumer Aadhar Status the status shows "GREEN " Circle against bank column as well as GREEN Circle against dealer’s column i.e. , symbol of ‘Aadhar Number’ available with Dealer, whereas in the Column of NPCI STATUS it ‘shows not available in NPCI Data base’. The remark also reads "Please visit your Bank to link your Aadhar number." I am confused whether the current Aadhar Status is eligible for getting subsidy benefits of LPG. Can anybody help me by clarifying this matter please.

I am a Bharat Gas Domestic Consumer (Consumer No.22476), Western Region. I have submitted copy of Aadhar Card to my Servicing Dealer and also linked the Aadhar Number through ATM with my Savings Account hold with Punjab National Bank. I have also visited the Bank, Ashram Road Branch of Punjab National Bank with the Photostat copy of Aadhar card but Bank staff refused to accept the hard copy of Aadhar Card saying reason that they don’t want hard copy when I have registered Aadhar Number Online through ATM. As per the website of ebharatgas – under Consumer Aadhar Status the status shows "GREEN " Circle against bank column as well as GREEN Circle against dealer’s column i.e. , symbol of ‘Aadhar Number’ available with Dealer, whereas in the Column of NPCI STATUS it ‘shows not available in NPCI Data base’. The remark also reads "Please visit your Bank to link your Aadhar number." I am confused whether the current Aadhar Status is eligible for getting subsidy benefits of LPG. Can anybody help me by clarifying this matter please. My email id : mohanprabhakaran@gmail.
