The smoke from burning such fuels causes alarming household pollution and has adverse affects on health of women & children causing several respiratory diseases and disorders. So, modi govt. now provides free LPG gas connections to all the poor family members in the name of women. Under PMUY scheme, govt. provides financial support of Rs 1600 for each LPG connection to the BPL households.
