Gas Bhagya Scheme in Karnataka State for BPL families

Gas Bhagya Scheme in Karnataka Scheme: After a successful Anna Bhagya scheme, Karnataka government will start a new scheme namely Gas Bhagya Scheme in Karnataka. We might have seen our grandmother and old women cooking food using kerosene oil, wood, paper, cow dung cake and crop residue. This scenario changed in our household because we can afford it now. At that time also we would have afforded it, but at that time Gas stove and cylinder were not so popular among peoples. But still, there are families who still use kerosene oil, wood, paper, cow dung cake and crop residue to cook their food. This method of cooking not only affects their health but also affects the pollution level in our country. So Indian government along with different state government are implanting some programs to change this scenario in our country, mainly in our villages.

Gas Bhagya Scheme in Karnataka State

What is Gas Bhagya Scheme?

Gas Bhagya Scheme has been started by Karnataka government for the families under Below Poverty Line (BPL). As we know these people cannot afford a gas connection or gas stove by themselves. So the government is trying to provide some free gas connection to poor peoples under Gas Bhagya Scheme. They will provide a cooking stove and an LPG gas connection under this scheme to the women under Below Poverty Line (BPL). Karnataka government is also interested in starting the Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojana in Karnataka by sharing the cost with central government.

Benefits and Objectives of Gas Bhagya Scheme

 Women cooking food using kerosene oil, wood, paper, cow dung cake and crop residue will now have a gas connection on their name.

 The health of these women will improve. Also, the pollution level will get stable a little by the use of gas in cooking food.

 Gas Bhagya Scheme is expected to benefit about 40% of almost 1 crore BPL families. Also, the expense of kerosene and other material will reduce.

 Women need to go to forests or some place outside from where they can get woods and some dry leaves to help in cooking food. Many accidents take place during this procedure. They will be stopped.

 Many women damage their eyes and face using these methods of cooking food, which will be reduced now. How to Get Gas Bhagya Scheme
