LPG consumers of Kashmir at receiving end as gas subsidy denied to them due to snapping of internet

srinagar, Oct 15: The Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) consumers in the Kashmir valley have been at the receiving end for the past couple of months and more since the gas subsidy is not being credited in their respective bank accounts.
As the internet facility is down in the valley the subsidy on account of subsidized gas cylinders is not being credited in the bank accounts of the customers. All the LPG companies operating in the Kashmir are not able to deliver the subsidy to their customers over the past 71 days.
Sources told Early Times that the different gas companies in the valley have delivered over nine lakh gas cylinders ever since August 5. They said the whole exercise has turned out to be half hearted one given the fact that the customers are not able to avail the subsidy on account of filled gas cylinders.
"For a poor person it is very difficult to pay Rs. 750-800 for a gas cylinder and that too at a time when Kashmiris are struggling to make the two ends meet. Customers used to get compensated for the payment made on account of the filled gas cylinders. Their subsidy would get credited in their bank accounts, but that is not to be for the past almost two and half months now," said sources.
Sources said the higher ups of the different gas companies have already raised this issue with the people at helm, but up to this moment of time no difference has been made in this regard. They said the internet facility should be restored at the earliest so that subsidy gets credited to bank accounts of customers.
It would be in place to mention here that the communication facilities were snapped in Kashmir valley on August 5 when Government of India abrogated Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution of India. Landline phones were gradually restored on August 17 and fully on September 4.
The post paid mobiles were restored on October 14, but the internet facility continues to be snapped. At the same time the pre-paid mobiles are yet to be restored in the Kashmir valley. The people as a whole have welcomed resumption of post paid mobile services but have demanded restart of internet facility.
"It is good that the government has restored the post paid mobile services but they should also take similar step with regards to internet services in Kashmir valley. Resumption of internet services is a must so that benefits of gas subsidy reach the customers especially the poor ones," said a gas dealer.
