New Delhi, January 4: Government post demonetization has taken various measures to make our country a cashless economy. Therefore, now various oil marketing companies like Indian Oil, BPCL & HPCL aiming to guide our country towards a cashless society are now offering an upfront discount of Rs 5/- on every LPG refill to all LPG customers who will book and pay for their LPG cylinders online.
Now, customers can make payment through existing online modes i.e through net banking, credit & debit cards at the time of web-booking their refills. These discounts will benefit directly to the customers as it will bring some relief as the rates of LPG refill will get a bit cheaper.
Customers will get the discounted amount displayed on their screens – i.e. net amount i.e refill RSP minus (-) incentive amount of Rs.5/- which they need to pay for their refill transactions. The net discounted amount will also be shown on the cash memo accompanying the home-delivery of the LPG cylinder.
Notably, under the aegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, it the endeavor of all Oil Marketing Companies aim to encourage consumers to increasingly shift to such payment modes through digital platforms to achieve the objective of no-cash or less cash-based transactions. The incentive will encourage more and more LPG consumers to go for cashless mode transactions.
