Thanks to Digital India, getting a new LPG connection will be just a click away

Prospective LPG consumers rejoice. The public sector fuel marketing companies are transforming from brick and mortar to click and order.

According to a report in The Times of India, the fuel retailing companies are jumping on to e-retail bandwagon and plans to launch a web-based system to sell new LPG connection and stoves.



The system will be available on each of these companies' websites and also on the site of Pahal, the government's LPG portal.

"The online system will allow prospective consumers to get a connection from the comfort of their home," an industry official has been quoted as saying in the report.

The new system is expected to be hugely helpful for the consumers. Once a consumer fill in the application for a new connection online, the system will automatically find out the nearest dealer. It will also give a customer ID within 48 hours, after which the consumer needs to make the payment.

The dealer will make the verify the details submitted by the consumer's and deliver the regulator, cylinder and rubber pipe at the consumer's home, the report says. The entire process is expected o take about 6-7 days.

The consumer can also order the stove of his choice online, the report says.

On the whole, the system will leave no room for harassment of the consumer at the hands of the dealership.
