What is LPG Regularization?

Earlier LPG was being distributed in the country in a non-centralized manner, after the introduction of regularization, all the companies are required to undergo the same formalities based on the directives released by the government of India. After the implementation of the regularization of the gas agencies, it is imperative for the companies to keep the personal details and all the other records of their customers.

However, sometimes, these customers wish to update their personal information on the KYC Records. To make the process more comfortable for the non registered users of LPG, the oil companies and other gas agencies have devised a  procedure that centralizes the entire distribution system of LPG. In this procedure, the consumers can be registered quickly and they need not visit the agency physically to get the details on their forms changed
