Linking "Adhar" with LPG has been introduced by the central government to avoid payment of subsidy to non-genuene LPG consumers and thereby reduce expenditure of the government. It was told that the consumers need not pay extra amount since the increase in the bill amount will be subsidised by credit to bank account. But, in effect the consumers are forced to pay an extra amount of Rs. 175.49 as shown in the table above. Verily, it is cheating by the Finance Ministry / UPA government on the pretext of implementing an advanced system. It is gathered that the gas agency delivery boys are collectig Rs.1,100/- from illiterate women folk for delivering one LPG gas cylinder. The central government should keep up their words and reduce the price of LPG cylinder or increase the subsidy amount being credited to bank accounts and monitor the activities of gas agencies. Consumers who have not linked Adhar with LPG so far may delay it as far as possible, since the LPG cylinder is available to them at the old price till it is linked with Adhar. Kerala is the first state to introduce this system. Consumers' and other public organisations of other states may take preventive measures to avoid the recurrence of the same in their states.
