Govt extends deadline for filling KYC form by LPG consumers
New Delhi: The government on Thursday extended by 15 days the deadline for filling the Know Your Customer (KYC) form by LPG consumers to month-end.

In a nationwide exercise to weed out multiple or ghost connections, the government had previously extended the deadline for customers to fill KYC forms by 15 days till November 15.

"Considering the mammoth exercise, the deadline on the request of oil companies has now been extended till November 30," an oil industry executive said here.

The drive to weed out multiple connections at same address follows the government decision in September to cap supply of subsidised LPG to six cylinders per household in a year.

The official said oil firms are implementing the policy of 'one household, one connection' and have asked consumers to voluntarily give up additional connections.

Multiple LPG connections in the 'same name and at the same address' as well as 'husband and wife' owning connections at the same address would be summarily disconnected.

In case of multiple connections at same address under different names, distributors have been asked to collect KYC forms to verify genuine users.

Consumers in the KYC form have to gives all the necessary details like name, date of birth, father's name, mother's name, spouse name, complete address with pin-code and also an optional information about bank details. They have to submit self-attested photocopies of address and ID proof along with the filled in form.

New subsidised LPG connections will be issued after completion of the KYC formalities and multiple connection check.

"All LPG consumers are eligible for three subsidised domestic cylinders during the remaining part of the current year ending March 31, 2013," the official said.

New subsidised LPG connections will be issued after completion of the KYC formalities and multiple connection check.

There is no restriction on the number of domestic non-subsidised cylinders that consumers can avail beyond the three subsidised LPG refills to meet their genuine demand.

From April 1, next year, LPG consumers can avail six domestic subsidised LPG refill cylinders in a financial year.
