 In a bid to encourage people to use digital modes of payments, oil marketing companies -- Indian Oil, BPCL and HPCL -- have decided to offer discount of Rs 5 on every LPG (cooking gas) cylinder to their customers booking cylinders online.

A ministry of petroleum and natural gas statement said the discount would be reflected on the accounts of customers immediately after online booking of cylinders. The net discounted amount will also be shown on the cash memo accompanying the home delivery of the LPG cylinder.
 
Under the aegis of ministry of petroleum and natural gas, all oil marketing companies aim to encourage consumers to increasingly shift to digital 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.
