Energy sector in India will go through a major structural change when LPG subsidy will be given directly in the bank account of the customers from 1st October, 2013. This subsidy will be given via bank accounts linked to Aadhar. The subsidy offered per customer would be INR 4000 per year. The only roadblock this initiative is likely to face is that many bank accounts are yet to be linked to Aadhar. On the other side it would help the government to save money as some of the customers have multiple connections and some of the commercial customers also use subsidized LPG cylinders.
