Did you hear about LPG Connection Portability for the first time? You might be aware about MNP or mobile number portability, similarly LCP has launched to transfer your LPG gas connection within distributors.
This is a step towards providing power to consumers, as now one can opt out and join a good distributor in case facing any problem. People also find it difficult when changes city due to job transfer.
In such a case if your local distributor of one city doesn’t have any presence in your target city, then this LPG Connection Portability facility will help you to transfer your gas connection from one distributor to another.

After that, you can see all the gas distributors listed & rated based on their service. You can find out the rating system that Govt. is going to implement:
- Excellent (delivering 85%of refills in 2 days)
- Very good (delivering 85% of refills in 4 days)
- Good (delivering 85%refills in 6 days)
- Average (delivering 85% of refills in 8 days)
- Below average (delivering 85%refills in 10 days)
- Poor (delivering 85% refills in more than 10 days)
Choose your preferred gas distributor and send them email with required information. On return you will get an email as confirmation, containing the next steps to take to transfer your LPG gas connection.
