The PM Ujjwala Yojana is an ambitious social welfare scheme of the Modi government launched on May 1 last year from Ballia in Uttar Pradesh.
The scheme was launched on May 1, 2016 from Ballia Uttar Pradesh. The programme is aimed at replacing wood-based cooking with LPG-based kitchen. Haryana has become of the first state to become completely Kerosene free.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi had then launched the #GiveItUp campaign urging people to leave the subsidy if they can afford to pay the full price. PM Modi carried on the campaign through TV advertisements and his radio programme Mann Ki Baat, making sure the message reached every household.
The government intends to give such subsidized connections to 5 crore households under this programme.
