One of the most used cooking resources in India is LPG, which is also known as Liquefied Petroleum Gas. LPG is also called cooking gas and is quite environment-friendly, unlike other cooking resources.
Many LPG distributors supply gas cylinders to the consumers (both household and commercial) through pan-India networks. Moreover, these cooking gas-filled cylinders are available in subsidized cost on a fixed number of cylinders per year, and that makes it quite affordable for the common man.
Earlier, it was quite a tedious task to book an LPG gas as one had to visit the dealership store and wait for hours for the new connection or new cylinder. Many times, the cylinders would never reach the consumer and there was no regulating authority to check these.
The situation has improved now, as the dealership has been assigned to the three primary cooking gas suppliers, namely, Indane, Bharat and HP.
