New Delhi: Government today said it had introduced lottery system to allocate dealerships of LPG and other petroleum products to bring greater transparency to the process.

Replying to supplementaries during Question Hour, Minister of State for Petroleum Jitin Prasada said locals would be given preference in allocation of LPG and kerosene dealerships in rural areas.

For convenience of customers, especially those residing in non-metropolitan areas, oil marketing companies have been setting up low cost rural retail outlets in addition to regular ones, to cater to rural/agricultural market in order to reach petroleum products to farmers' doorstep, he said.

"Further, with a view to increasing LPG penetration to cover low potential/rural areas, a new scheme called Rajiv Gandhi Gramin LPG Vitarak Yojana has been launched," he said.
