Thread: Indane gas refill period

  1. #1

    Indane gas refill period


    I would like to know if Indane Gas has come up with any new rules with regard to the time period for refilling your LPG gas cylinder. I am told that if one does not book their LPG gas cylinder within 180 days then the account gets locked and one needs to go back through the whole procedure of rebooking once again. Secondly, if the connection is in your husbands name and if he is placed out of station or abroad then he needs to be physically present in order to rebook/unfreeze the locked connection. If he cannot be present physically then the spouse or this parents can submit an affidavit and get the new connection by paying some "x" amount but one wil not get the earlier deposit money for this new connection. My question is " is there a new rule that we need to book the gas cylinder within 180 days??"

    Dear Member

    " Refill can be booked as and when required by a customer to meet his/her genuine requirement of LPG for domestic cooking purpose. No time gap has been specified between the date of supply of a domestic LPG cylinder and the date for booking of the next refill. The same is also true for commercial LPG supplies."
    THIS WAS THE REPLY FROM IOCL in response to my complaint. Please ALSO read this full thread.
