LPG consumers of Assam will continue to get LPG subsidies

 LPG consumers of Assam will continue to get LPG subsidies

LPG consumers of the state were confused on Friday after they received an SMS from Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) which said subsidy transfer to their bank accounts has been kept on hold as they have not submitted their Aadhaar number yet.
 
Finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who spoke to MoS for petroleum Dharmendra Pradhan, later tweeted that Assam consumers will continue to get LPG subsidies as Aadhaar is not fully implemented in Assam.
 
The Centre on Saturday directed IOC to exempt consumers in the state from the mandatory clause of submitting the Aadhaar number because the process of issuing Aadhaar cards has not yet started in the state.
 
IOC sent out a second SMS to all consumers, asking them to ignore the earlier SMS.
