Subsidised LPG cylinders can be purchased without having an Aadhaar account, the government informed the Lok Sabha on Friday.

A clarification on delinking Aadhaar account from disbursal of subsidised LPG cylinders would be issued within a week, Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Veerappa Moily said during Question Hour.

The government has at last understood that the earlier decision to link subsidy cylinders to Aadhar is not correct. The Supreme Court had already told the government that it does not stand legal scrutiny.
