Project Description

Under the flagship scheme of Govt. of India, i.e. Pradhan mantri Ujjwala Yojana, IndianOil has provided LPG connections to BPL families since its launch in May 2016. The objective of the scheme is to provide clean cooking fuel to the BPL families to eliminate use of biomass like agricultural residue, wood, cow-dung etc. The Clean fuel has helped in eliminating domestic pollutions and thus, improving the health of women from BPL families

As per a study by World Health Organization, about 1 million people die every year in India, which can be attributable to diseases related to indoor air pollution. Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) aims to safeguard the health of women & children by providing them with cleaner cooking fuel, i.e. LPG. Under this scheme, IndianOil contributes 20% of 2% of previous year's profit towards release of one-time grant to BPL families in rural areas for release of new LPG connections. During 2018-19, under CSR, LPG connections were released to about 5.33 lakh families.
