New Delhi: Cooking gas (LPG) consumers can now switch their suppliers as Oil Minister M Veerappa Moily today approved inter-company portability on the lines of the facility that allows mobile phone users to change operators while retaining their numbers.

LPG connection portability will be available in 480 districts, an official statement said here.  

“These districts cover all possible LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) markets which have multiple LPG distributors,” it said.

The government had initially launched the portability scheme in 24 districts of 13 states in October.  

With this, LPG consumers can switch to a distributor of their choice within a cluster of dealers in the vicinity.  

“This measure will bring great relief to those LPG consumers who are unhappy with the services of their current distributor or want to move to an LPG distributor closer to their home,” according to the statement.  A consumer can chose an agency based in its track record.
