Mumbai, May 16 : The PSU Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) – IOC, BPC and HPC – have been directed to stop supplies of LPG refills to households having multiple-connections for which no KYC (Know Your Customer) details have been received, with effect from June 1st. No transactions, including delivery of non-subsidised cylinders, will be permitted in such cases once such connections have been blocked.
The OMCs, in a press release on Friday said that the customer data has been shared between IOC, HPC and BPC and all multiple LPG connection holders have been identified and intimated. A list of such customers is also displayed at the respective LPG distributorships and published in the OMC websites (www.indane.co.in, www.ebharatgas.com and www.hpgas.com). Only these customers need to submit their KYC details along with proof of identity (POI) and proof of address (POA) immediately to their LPG distributors so as to receive their uninterrupted quota of subsidized cylinders. Other customers whose names do not appear in the above-mentioned list need not submit their KYC details as they are not required to do so as of now.
The PSU Oil Marketing Companies are, therefore, advising all multiple-connection holders to submit their KYC details, pertaining to the LPG connection they wish to retain, immediately to their LPG distributors. Such customers are also being advised to surrender their other LPG connections immediately to their LPG distributors to avoid blocking of further supplies. These customers will not be entitled to LPG refills till such time as they complete their KYC formalities. Though the deadline for submission of KYC was 31st December 2012, KYCs are being accepted and LPG connections are being regularised for supply of subsidised cylinders till date. INN
