If you want to receive the LPG subsidy directly to your bank account then you will need to link your LPG connection with the bank account. However, before that you will need to link your bank account with the Aadhar card (or ULID number). As you may already know, the Indian government provides you subsidy over the LPG connection. This means that you pay the price for an LPG cylinder lower than the actual price. The Pahal scheme launched by the Indian government offers DBTL scheme (Direct Benefit transfer for LPG). This allows maintaining transparency. With the DBTL scheme, you pay the market price for the LPG cylinder and the subsidy amount is later transferred directly to your bank account.
Link the Aadhar Card to the bank account
As already mentioned, you need to link the Aadhar card to the bank account to avail the benefits of the Pahal or DBTL scheme. Here are two ways to link the card to your account:
Method 1: You can walk into the branch of the bank where you have the bank account. You can also go to any nearest branch of the bank with which you have the bank account. At the bank you can ask the customer care representative to link your 12 digit ULID or the Aadhar card number with your bank account. You will get the required help and the Aadhar number will be updated within no time.
Method 2: There is a form you can fill and submit at the nearest branch of the bank with whom you have the bank account and they will complete the linking process for you. You can also go to the nearest LPG distributor and submit the form there.
It is an application form addressed to the branch manager. You will need to specify the name of the bank and the branch address. You will also need to write the bank account number and other details matching your record with the bank. You will also need to write the 12-digit ULID.
Once you have filled the form and submitted it, you will start receiving the Pahal or DBTL subsidies directly to your bank account.
Method 3: There are some banks which also allow you to update the aadhar number via SMS. You can contact your bank over the phone for more details.
