PMGKY benefits to PMUY beneficiaries

Hon’ble Finance Minister had announced on 26.03.2020 a set of pro-poor initiatives under “Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package” as part of the Economic response to COVID-19. This was aimed at ameliorating the hardships faced by the poor due to economic disruption caused by Corona Virus. As part of Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan package, a scheme for providing free LPG cylinders to PMUY beneficiaries for the next three months w.e.f. 01.04.2020 was implemented. An advance equal to retail selling price of a refill in the month of April, 2020 was transferred to the account of PMUY beneficiaries. During implementation of the Scheme, it was observed that a large number of beneficiaries haven’t been able to take full advantage of the scheme. Hence, the Scheme was extended till September 30, 2020 for those beneficiaries who have been credited with the advance for buying first/Second cylinder, but not able to buy the cylinders till 30th June 2020.

OMCs have transferred ₹ 9670.41 crore to the account of PMUY beneficiaries for buying LPG refills and have delivered 1,347.12 lakh refills to PMUY beneficiaries under this Scheme as on 14.09.2020.
