The scheme to disburse subsidy on cooking gas to consumers in the district will come into force soon, Executive Director of Bharat Petroleum Corporation George Paul has said.

Mr. Paul said he, on behalf of oil companies, had held discussion with District Collector and other officials to review the arrangements being made for introducing the Aadhar-linked direct benefit transfer scheme in the district on Tuesday.

He said the delay in introducing the scheme was due to the delay on the part of the consumers in linking their Aadhar registration number with their bank account.
