The Government in 2016 has launched ‘Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY)’, aiming to safeguard the health of women & children by providing them with a clean cooking fuel like LPG. The smokes and fumes from the firewood, coal and dung-cakes, causes alarming household pollution and adversely affects the health of Women & children. The seriousness of the issue can be determined by a WHO report which suggests that the smoke inhaled by women from unclean fuel is equivalent to burning 400 cigarettes in an hour.
