Ujjwala 2.0

Ujjwala 2.0 will provide free cooking gas connection to the economically weak families. The Central Government will be providing an additional one crore LPG connections under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY). Under the Ujjwala 2.0, LPG connections will be provided to the poor families who were not covered under the earlier phase of the scheme.
The PMUY was launched in 2016 to protect the health of women and children and reduce pollution. Cash assistance is provided for purchasing a new deposit-free gas connection to make LPG more accessible. The connections were given in the name of the women heads of the households.
