In a significant development, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has officially launched the initiative to provide affordable LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cylinders to sisters in the state. This move comes after Chouhan’s announcement on the occasion of Rakshabandhan that such a scheme would be implemented in the state.
Speaking about the initiative, Chief Minister Chouhan expressed his delight in delivering on his promise and emphasized the importance of this scheme for the welfare of the state’s women.
Under this program, sisters in Madhya Pradesh will be able to purchase LPG cylinders at the reduced rate of Rs 450. To avail of this benefit, eligible sisters need to register themselves on the Mukhyamantri Ladli Brahmin Portal. It is important to note that only sisters who already have LPG connections will be eligible for this scheme. Additionally, beneficiaries of the Ujjwala scheme, which aims to provide clean cooking fuel to women below the poverty line, will also benefit from this initiative.
“The registration process for this scheme is straightforward, as only the LPG connection ID and Samagra ID are required for registration. Interested sisters can complete their registration at the same centers where they previously registered under the Ladli Brahmin Yojana. The registration information will be available on the portal starting on September 25th. Moreover, the portal will also offer a facility for addressing any complaints or issues related to the scheme”.
One of the key features of this initiative is that sisters will only need to pay the selling rate for the LPG cylinders, and the remaining amount will be deposited directly into their bank accounts. This ensures that the benefits of affordable LPG reach the intended beneficiaries without any hassles.
