PAHAL Scheme


PAHAL (DBTL) Scheme for LPG Subsidy

Pratyaksh Hanstantrit Labh (PAHAL) scheme also called as Direct Benefit Transfer for LPG (DBTL) was launched to provide liquified petroleum gas (LPG) cylinder of Bharat, Indane, HP at subsidised rate to the Indian consumer. This will mark an end to duplicate or misuse of LPG connections which are very common in India. Customers who get enrolled in PAHAL scheme are referred to as Cash Transfer Compliant (CTC). Last date to join the scheme is 31stMarch 2015

Benefits to the consumer

  • Once the customer is enrolled in PAHAL and books cylinder for the first time, he/she will get cash subsidy (Rs. 568) as an permanent advance directly into
    their bank account which can be used to pay for the first cylinder.
  • This advance then can be used to buy 12 LPG cylinders weighing 14.2 Kgs OR 34 5 Kgs cylinders. Subsidy amount = Current subsidised rate – market price. This difference amount is credited to the customer's bank account.
  • New LPG's would be available in the market in a much simpler way as compared to previous process as back logs would be reduced.

How to get LPG cylinder at subsidised rate?

  • Those to want to get enrolled into PAHAL scheme to get gas cylinder at subsidised rate should have either Aadhar number or an active bank account.
    Hurry, those who do not have bank account, can open zero balance account under Pradhanmantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) which offers many benefits.
  • Aadhar card holder should get Aadhar number linked to the bank account in order to avail the subsidy amount.
  • Individuals meeting above mandatory requirement, then needs to link Aadhar number or bank account number to the 17 digit LPG connection ID.
  • For linking, individual should approach his/her area's LPG distributor who will then save these details in their computer system.
