Details of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana Manipur
Under this scheme, the poor women of the below poverty line families as categorized by the Socio-Economic Caste Census 2011 (SECC) would be provided free gas connections in the state.
In our country, about 10 crore families still use wood, straws, dried cow dungs and other unclean fuel for cooking purposes and the fumes and gases utilized by this fuel result in various health complications like eye irritation, lung corrosion and even lung cancer due to the presence of carcinogens.
Women and children are often at high risk as they are regularly exposed to these gases and it is estimated that inhaling these gases for one hour is comparable to smoking 400 cigarettes.
Central’s ambitious scheme, PM Ujjwala Yojana aims to address these issues and health hazard by providing free LPG connections to those BPL households.
Our Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched PMUY scheme on May 1, 2016 at Ballia, Uttar Pradesh. Firstly, this scheme was launched at Assam on May 13 this year. Tomorrow, it would be launched for Nagaland while it will be launched on June 1 for Arunachal Pradesh.
As per the 2011 SECC, there are 2.36 lakhs BPL families in Manipur and free LPG connection would be provided to one woman (18-60 years) of each of these families.
Along with the free LPG connection and other necessary material, a budgetary support of Rs 1600 would also be provided.

In order to ensure smooth operation and success of the scheme, the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has already distributed the list of BPL households of the State to its LPG distributors.
