Ujjwala Yojana 2.0 Launch in Mahoba, Uttar Pradesh Live: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana – PMUY’s second phase Ujjwala 2.0 virtually from Mahoba in Uttar Pradesh. CM Yogi Adityanath handed over 10 LPG connections to women in Mahoba to mark the beginning of the programme. During the event, the Prime Minister also interacted with beneficiaries of the Ujjwala. PM Modi talked to beneficiaries from Uttarakhand, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and other states. He asked them about their experiences prior to getting the LPG connections. PM Modi also said that once there used to be a discussion in Parliament over the number of subsidized cylinders and the situation has changed now. PM Modi also asked the beneficiaries whether they had to go through any broker while applying for the LPG connection and also sought to know whether they got free LPGs during the lockdown.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath thanked the PM for choosing UP for the second phase of the scheme. He said that the LPG connection numbers in the state has increased to 3.25 crore households. According to a UP government spokesperson, in the first phase of the scheme, 1,47,43,862 LPG connections were made available to the poor families of the state. Those families who were left out in the first phase of the Ujjwala scheme will be benefited in the second phase, he said. On the occasion of World Biofuel Day which is also celebrated today, Chief Minister Adityanath and Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Hardeep Singh Puri would inaugurate the Biofuel Exhibition organized at the parade ground of the Police Lines in Mahoba district. Compressed biogas plant being set up in Muzaffarnagar district will also be inaugurated on this occasion, the spokesperson added. “During Ujjwala 1.0 launched in 2016, a target was set to provide LPG connections to 5 crore women members of BPL households. Subsequently, the scheme was expanded in April 2018 to include women beneficiaries from seven more categories (SC/ST, PMAY, AAY, Most backward classes, tea garden, forest dwellers, Islands). Also, the target was revised to 8 Crore LPG connections. This target was achieved in August 2019, seven months ahead of the target date,” said a release from PM’s office.

    In the Union budget for FY 21-22, provision for an additional one crore LPG connection under the PMUY scheme was announced. These one crore additional PMUY connections (under Ujjwala 2.0) aim to provide deposit-free LPG connections to those low-income families who could not be covered under the earlier phase of PMUY. Along with a deposit free LPG connection, Ujjwala 2.0 will provide first refill and hotplate free of cost to the beneficiaries. Also, the enrollment procedure will require minimum paperwork. In Ujjwala 2.0, migrants will not be required to submit ration cards or address proof. A self-declaration for both ‘family declaration’ and as a ‘proof of address’ will suffice. Ujjwala 2.0 will help achieve the Prime Minister’s vision of universal access to LPG.
