Union Government Launched the Inter Company LPG Portability Scheme

Oct 5, 2013 16:27 IST

The Union government of India on 5 October 2013 launched the Inter Company LPG portability scheme in 24 cities across the country. It started with Bangaluru, Karnataka. The cities are Hyderabad, Patna, Dehradun, Faridabad, Kolkata, and Chandigarh among others. The scheme will not be launched in the five poll-bound states including Delhi, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh due to model code of conduct.

Under the portability scheme, a consumer can now opt for the distributor of his choice within a cluster of LPG distributors in the vicinity and across the oil companies. Presently, an LPG consumer is attached to a distributor and cannot change its distributor even he is unhappy with the service.

The consumers will be able to see the service ratings of all the distributors in their clusters and choose the one they want to based on service levels. This will usher in improvement in consumer service by the distributors as it will bring in competition in the cluster of distributors.
