New Delhi: Home delivery of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders will require an OTP (one-time-password) from next month. Individuals who wish to receive doorstep delivery of cooking gas cylinders will now need an OTP for the process.
Oil companies are implementing a new system, Delivery Authentication Code (DAC), to prevent theft of cylinders and also for identifying the right customer, according to a few media reports.
The DAC process for home delivery of LPG cylinders will be first implemented in 100 smart cities and will be expanded if the transition is smooth for customers. It may be noted that a pilot project is already underway in Jaipur in Rajasthan.
