Therefore, the central government has created the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana to provide gas to every household. Under this scheme, gas will be used for cooking in all households.
Today almost all homes have gas facility. Due to which women are being made to cook easily and they are also getting benefit of some money. Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana was launched by the Central Government on 01 May 2016. Under this scheme, the central government is providing this gas to women of APL and BPL and ration card holders of India.
