Author(s): Dr. Ranjana Mall
Pradhanmantri ujjawala yojana is aimed at providing 8 Crore LPG connections in the name of women in BPL (Below Poverty Line) households across the country. LPG connections have increased no doubt, but PMUY beneficiaries do not seem to be using their LPG cylinders, a large number of PMUY beneficiaries have not come back for refills However the sustainability of PMUY is still debated. Present study was conducted in Bihar. 200 women beneficiaries of PMUY (age group 40-55 years) from the two blocks (Kurhani & Bochahan) of Muzaffarpur district was selected randomly. Interview schedule was constructed to record the data obtained. The interview questions were analyzed using descriptive narrations. Data shows that more than half (57.78%) of the women were literate, while 42.22% of them were illiterate. A highly significant association (The chi-square statistic is 9.5748 & the p-value is .008334) was observed between caste and literacy. Present study also revealed that highly significant association between adaptation of LPG/ sustainability of LPG/ use of other optional kitchen fuel with education.
