It would only require submitting one time identity proof of unlike the previous procedure in which a person had to submit his identity proof as well as his proof of residence and show the gas book for every refill of his cylinder.

The new 5kg LPG gas connection needs one time identity proof on the time of purchase.
It has no limitation of buying the cylinder like in domestic plan people can only get 12 cylinders as per the rule but here in this there is no limitation.
