Need gas in an emergency? Now 5 kg commercial gas cylinders are available in Dehradun at petrol pumps and gas agencies, albeit at a heavy price. A regular domestic cylinder which weighs 14 kg costs Rs. 435 at the subsidized rate. The 5 kg commercial cylinder will cost Rs 460. Besides this there will be a one time connection fees of Rs. 1625. After paying the connection fees and giving any photo ID proof like DL, Passport, Aadhar Card or Raashan Card, one can immediately take the cylinder. There is no requirement to present address proof and there is no limit on the number of cylinders a person can take in a year.
This scheme will be very convenient for students who take up rooms and do their own cooking and those who come to Doon on transferable jobs and do not have immediate access to a gas connection. The scheme is already in place at the Ashirwad Petrol Pump at Ballupur and at the Astley Hall Sahakari Bazaar Gas Agency. The scheme will soon be extended to neighborhood grocery stores also.
