While booking an LPG refill through a mobile app/customer portal using registered login, the customer would be shown the list of delivering distributors along with their performance rating shall be displayed. The customer can opt for any of the distributors from the list applicable for his/her area to get an LPG refill delivery. The service will not only empower the customers by way of enhanced choice but also inspire healthy competition amongst the distributors to provide the best in class services to the customers and improve their performance ratings.

Furthering the Digital India mission, the Oil Marketing Companies under the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas are constantly upgrading their facilities to provide a seamless digital experience to the customers. The need for contactless transactions has been amplified in view of the restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. Leveraging technology, OMCs have adopted the following digital initiatives to help customers to book and pay for their LPG refills through digital platforms:
