Mandatory Biometric Update for LPG Cylinder Customers

Howrah, India – December 5, 2023 – In a move to streamline the distribution of LPG subsidies and prevent unauthorized access to subsidized cylinders, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has made biometric authentication mandatory for all LPG cylinder customers. This means that all LPG cylinder customers will need to provide their biometric data, such as fingerprints or iris scans, to their LPG distributor in order to receive subsidized LPG cylinders.

The mandatory biometric update process is currently underway in many parts of India. LPG distributors are visiting customers’ homes to collect their biometric data. Customers can also visit their LPG distributor’s office to provide their biometric data.

The mandatory biometric update is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Once the update is complete, customers will only be able to receive subsidized LPG cylinders if they have provided their biometric data.

Benefits of Mandatory Biometric Update

  • Preventing unauthorized access to subsidized LPG cylinders: Biometric authentication will make it difficult for unauthorized individuals to receive subsidized LPG cylinders.
  • Streamlining the distribution of LPG subsidies: Biometric authentication will help to ensure that LPG subsidies are only distributed to eligible customers.
  • Reducing fraud: Biometric authentication will help to reduce fraud in the LPG subsidy distribution system.

How to Provide Your Biometric Data

To provide your biometric data, you will need to visit your LPG distributor’s office or wait for your LPG distributor to visit your home. You will need to bring your LPG connection’s consumer number and any other relevant documents with you.

The biometric update process is quick and easy. You will be asked to provide your fingerprints or iris scans. The data will be stored securely and will only be used for the purpose of verifying your identity.

For More Information

Please visit the website of your LPG distributor or the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas for more information about the mandatory biometric update.
