Narendra Modi US visit: PM elaborated on the benefits of Direct Benefit Transfer and said this has helped in better targeting of subsidy and eliminated leakage to a large degree. The Prime Minister complimented families which have given up their LPG subsidy. He laid out the vision of providing LPG connections to 5 crore poor households. "When I think of a developed India, I think of a healthy India, particularly the good health of the women and children of our nation", he added. The expansion of LPG connections has had the effect of women no longer having to prepare meals on wooden smoke-emitting stoves that harmed their health, PM pointed out.
