In May 2016, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOPNG) launched Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) as a flagship scheme aimed at providing cooking fuel to rural and underprivileged households to have access to clean gas systems like LPG. The use of traditional cooking fuel has harmful effects on the health of rural women as well as the environment.

Under the Union Budget for the financial year 21-22, the Central Government made a provision to release an additional 1 crore LPG connections under the PMUY scheme. Release of 8 crore LPG connections under this scheme has also helped in increasing LPG coverage from 62% on 1st May 2016 to 99.8% on 1st April 2021.
