How to link your Aadhaar Card with LPG?

Nearly 80% Indian households use an LPG connection, and India is the second largest domestic LPG consumer in the world.

One of the reasons for the popularity of LPG is that the gas connection is subsidised by the government, making it affordable for most Indians.

If you use an LPG connection, you can get the subsidy directly into your bank account by linking your Aadhaar to your connection.

Gas companies offer a variety of ways in which you can link your Aadhaar to your LPG connection. You can do so by visiting a distributor, over a call, through IVRS or by sending an SMS.

Keep your Aadhaar card handy before you begin the process.

1)   Submit application to the Distributor:

  • Download the subsidy application form from your respective LPG gas company’s website
  • Print out the form and fill in the required details
  • Submit the form to a distributor’s office


2)   Call centre:

  • Call on 18000-2333-555
  • The operator will guide you through the rest of the steps


3)   Through Interactive Voice Response system (IVRS):

  • Every LPG service provider has developed an IVRS to help users link their Aadhaar Card
  • Each district has a different IVRS code and you will be able to find it on the gas company’s company website.
