Stop Asking Consumers to carry LPG cylinders during Transfer/ Surrender- Its a DEATH TRAP

This petition had 6 supporters

PROBLEM: Indian citizens are on move! With rising business and bustling economy, common citizens would continue to move across states. Indane, HP, etc. have a nonsensical rule that puts citizens under risks that can turn out to be deadly- during transfer or surrender of LPG connection, they expect citizens to bring cylinders at their doorstep (by whatever means). At the same, Govt. of India have clear regulations regarding transport of LPG cylinders ( Thus, citizens are forced to violate the regulations of cylinder transportation and take life risks while transporting empty or partially filled LPG cylinders. The risks are extended to passer-by and other public road users and vehicles. Many of consumers are elderly citizens, specially abled, or medially unfit. Even they are expected to carry their own cylinders to distributors by whatever means! This mindless policy violating GOI directions must be revoked immediately. Here is the solution:

SOLUTION: Ministry of Oil & gas must direct the IOCL, HP etc. to make sure that LPG distributors take end to end responsibility of cylinders during transfer or surrender of subscription. They are authorized to safely handle LPG cylinders. We, common citizens are not. Every subscription contains address proof. Thus, once citizens book request for LPG movement, distributor must assign their staff to pick up LPG cylinders from home to their location and vice versa (during new connection delivery). As a fast maturing economy & society, we cannot allow archaic, mindless rules that violate GOI's own regulations on transportation of hazardous goods.

Action is requested from Sri Dharmendra Pradhan and the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. Let good sense prevail !
