Don’t be surprised if the gas dealer refuses to refill your cylinder post Ugadi  if you are a defaulter.

In 10 days, the department of food and civil supplies is hoping to complete the process of validating all data which have been entered in the electronic data sheets. “The data validation is going on and we will take another 10 days to complete the process. We do not want any incorrect records in the data,” said BA Harish Gowda, secretary to the department.

National Informatics Centre (NIC) is doing the validation work on behalf of the department. While the ration cards will be validated by the department itself, electricity bills will be validated by the respective Escoms. The LPG consumer identification numbers will be validated with the petroleum companies and the local gas agencies.

The department had earlier announced that once the validation was over, the department would go ahead with publishing the list of defaulters on their website and send copies to the gas agencies in state. Gowda reaffirmed this on Tuesday.

These defaulters will have their LPG connections disconnected thereafter. They might also be denied of their ration at the fair price shops until they can produce documents to prove that their LPG connection is legal.
