The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana provided 75 lakh LPG connections, and the Narendra Modi administration approved the distribution of Rs 1,650 crore to oil marketing corporations on Wednesday, September 13.
Anurag Thakur, the minister of information and broadcasting, informed reporters in New Delhi that the decision was made during a meeting of the Union Cabinet presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), introduced by Modi on May 1, 2016, in Ballia, Uttar Pradesh, aims to protect the health of women and children by offering free cooking gas (LPG) connections to low-income families.
By giving people access to LPG, a clean cooking fuel, the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) “aims to safeguard the health of women and children.” In May 2016, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi unveiled the programme.
Firewood, coal, and cakes made from cow dung are some traditional cooking fuels; nevertheless, their use can have negative health and respiratory effects. They influence climate as well.
