Since the Congress government’s start in Telangana, inquiries about subsidized Rs 500 LPG cylinders surged, engulfing Hyderabad’s distribution centers. This curiosity spawned public confusion, leading many to queue up, grappling with the Mahalakshmi scheme and e-KYC intricacies.

The WhatsApp Message Buzz

A circulated WhatsApp message fueled the frenzy, stating mandatory registration for the Maha Lakshmi scheme at gas agencies in Hyderabad and other Telangana districts to get LPG cylinders at an unprecedented Rs 500. The message ominously warns that failure to register would result in acquiring the same cylinder at a hefty Rs 1200.

Queues Form at LPG Distribution Centers

Fuelled by these rumors, denizens in various areas such as Musheerabad, Bhavaninagar, Santoshnagar, Malakpet, Tolichowki, Alwal, and Sanathnagar found themselves standing in queues. They were diligently updating their e-KYC details, under the mistaken belief that it was a requisite for the Mahalakshmi scheme.

Clarification Amidst Confusion

Contrary to the circulated rumors, the Union Ministry of Oil and Natural Gas mandated the e-KYC update for all LPG consumers, setting a deadline of December 31. Importantly, this requirement bears no relation to the Mahalakshmi scheme. Up until now, the Telangana government has not initiated the scheme to provide LPG cylinders at the promised Rs 500 in Hyderabad and other districts.

Centre’s Directive on e-KYC

In response to the Centre’s directive on e-KYC, queues at gas agencies swelled, prompting the Telangana State LPG Distributors Association to step in. President Jagan Mohan Reddy issued a statement advising consumers that visiting gas agency offices for gas cylinder e-KYC is unnecessary. This process can be efficiently handled by delivery personnel at the consumer’s doorstep.

KYC Completion at Home

President Jagan Mohan Reddy emphasized that the Centre’s directive to complete KYC at the homes of consumers does not have a fixed deadline. He reassured consumers and urged them not to be concerned about looming deadlines, discouraging unnecessary visits to agency offices.

Implementation Status of Rs 500 Cylinder Guarantee

Addressing concerns, Jagan Mohan clarified that as of now, no official orders have been received regarding the implementation of the Congress government’s promise of providing cylinders at Rs 500. Notably, the KYC process can be streamlined through a dedicated app on the smartphones of delivery personnel. For those yet to complete KYC, a visit to agency offices remains a viable option.

In conclusion, while the buzz around Rs 500 LPG cylinders persists, it’s crucial to separate fact from fiction. Consumers should stay informed through official channels to avoid hassles, as the implementation of the Mahalakshmi scheme and the availability of subsidized cylinders at Rs 500 are still speculative.
