After a few weeks of hiatus, state-owned oil companies have resumed issuing new subsidised cooking gas (LPG) connections, beginning with northeast states. In September, issue of new LPG connections had been put on hold pending a nationwide exercise to eliminate users having multiple connections at the same address. The three oil PSUs have now started releasing new LPG connections in Meghalaya, Sikkim, Nagaland and Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Indian Oil Corp said. Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Manipur and Tripura will follow suit shortly.
