New Delhi: If you wish to have a new LPG connection then it has become quite easy. One need not visit any distributor. All you have to do is to register through an online portal. At present, HPCL, BPCL and IOCL are the distributors of LPG cylinders across India. There are many facilities available to the LPG customers such as transfer of connection to new residents, delivery on preferred time and feedback and complaints against distributors.
One important point to note here is that LPG connections can be transferred only in the case of relatives and demise of connection holder.
Here is how Indian Oil helps to transfer LPG connection to different name-
A. Transfer to a family member– In case the transferee from the family does not have an LPG connection then you need to provide a request to your distributor with KYC details of the transferee, identity and address proof, original subscription voucher(SV) in your name, declaration from the transferee.
After this, the KYC will be verified and the multiple connections in the address mentioned for the transfer will be checked. The distributor will make a new SV in the name of the transferee. One important point to note here is that security deposit will remain the same as in the original SV.
B. The demise of connection holder– In case the legal heir (transferee) does not have an LPG connection then provide a request to your distributor with declaration by legal heir, copy of death certificate, KYC of the legal heir, Identity and address proof, original Subscription Voucher(SV) in the name of deceased. Provide an affidavit in case SV is missing.
