Here you can find clear and simple online procedure for changing from other bank account to SBI, found almost all bank has the same procedure now. It is basically two part procedure in which first part is the registration of Aadhaar and linking it to your Bank account. The second part is to link your LPG ID with your Bank account number. If you already have linked your Aadhaar number, you can skip the first part and start the second part for linking LPG ID.

The final confirmation from National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) will be received as SMS after one to two weeks. Once NPCI confirmed, your LPG ID will be shown in your netbanking page as well as LPG company's website.

Once your LPG company updated your new bank account, the next subsidy amount will be credited to your new bank account. Don't response to your previous bank's notification about this change. That's all!

LPG connection is in my father's name, we had to open an account in Andhra Bank in the name of my father and provide his Aadhar to get subsidy.
I have an account in SBI with my Aadhar linked to it, we want to get subsidy in my bank account, not my father's because we want to close that account due to some reasons.
Can we get subsidy in my bank account even if the LPG is in my father's name? If yes then kindly tell me the process.

LPG connection is in my father's name we had to open an account in syndicate bank in the name of my father and provided his Aadhaar to get subsidy. I have an account in Canara bank with my aadhaar linked to it we want to get subsidy in my bank account not my father's because we want to close that account Due to some reasons can we get subsidy in my bank account even if the lpg is in my father's name? If yes, then kindly tell me the process.

I don't think LPG subsidy amount will be credited to bank account linked with another person's Aadhaar number. When NPCI process the payment, system will check matching of Aadhaar number which should be same on LPG account and Bank account.

What you can do is transfer LPG connection from your father to your account. To do this you have to give transfer request to agency.

My gas subsidy is coming to my closed account and failed to credit. How can i change my gas subsidy account Please reply

You must visit your gas agency and fill up application form to changing account number

GAS AGENCY SAYS THAT IT IS THE DUTY OF BANK TO CHANGE. DUTY OF GAS AGENCY IS ONLY TO LINK AADHAR. THIS IS CONFIRMED BY IOC ALSO. i was initially getting subsidy through Kotak bank. I had inoperative account with Bank of India. when bank of india wanted my aadhar details I provided. automatically my subsidy bank was changed to Bank of India. Without seeing this I closed the bank account. since Dec 2017 I am not getting subsidy. all my existing SB accounts with other banks were already aadhar linked accounts and now they are not in a position to again link the bank account for getting subsidy. Please tell me how to get subsidy in aadhar linked existing accounts.

You should wait enough time after changing account details. In some cases it may take more than usual time we expect. In your case I think, you have made 3 changes within a short period, in which NPCI system may suspect or flag the actions.

After that I reseeded my aadhar in my OBC bank. my subsidy is now coming in the OBC account but at the HP portal and my consumer console no bank is shown linked, I filed a complain for the same to HP. but till now nothing has done. what can be done further

I have linked my aadhaar no with my SBI account and the details are not shared with NPCI server, because of that I am not getting my subsidy amount in to my SBI account.It is going to my HDFC account, which I am not using now.How to share my SBI details to NPCI server.

If you are a HP Gas consumer,Go to
1. Create your profile using your consumer id, email and other basic details.
2. Next, Click on the Pahal scheme(on the Top right of the page)

5. Download this form, fill in the details and submit one copy each to the bank(any bank where you wish to receive the subsidy) and your Gas Agency.

Sir,from September 2017 we didnt received our gas subsidy as my husband closed his personal January 2018 we noticed we are not receiving our subsidy &contact gas agency they informed need of personal account number. Now we registered new account are we able to get all pending subsidy ?

Sir, My bank account in Bank of India, in which I was getting my LPG subsidy, was closed in the month of Jul 2018. Subsequently I requested SBI to do the de-linking/linking of my Aadhar No to my bank account to get my LPG subsidy. But to no avail even after waiting for long periods. Then I opened a fresh bank account in ICICI bank with a photocopy of bank account to the local LPG distributor. Again there is no progress even after 5-6 days. Plz give me a suitable advice to overcome this problem.
Thanks & regards.

After seeding is completed and Aadhaar is reflecting in NPCI mapper, the pending subsidies will be initiated by respective OMC at regular intervals and the same will be credited to your last seeded bank account.
For pending subsidy you may call toll free number: 1800 2333 555 of OMCs

The problem is that till now the subsidy payment was being automatically shifted to the new type of Aadhar based bank account without even the proper information to the consumers Once people started objecting the PAHAL stopped shifting the subsidy payment to a new bank account automatically. In reality people are trapped in those Aadhar based new accounts I/you cancel the account, you loose subsidy which will come to the cancelled account and returns. Nobody knows how to escape from this trap.

Sir i linked my aadhar with my bank acccount by filling npci form but ti does not shown to npci record although i link my aadhar with my bank....please tell me what can i do so that it will be shown to npci website

MY Gas Consumer No 19057 Indane Gas and Cus ID 3 7500 0000 1173 2969.

I have changed my bank account for LPG subsidy on 26-9-2018 with SBI Valluvar Kottam Branch Chennai 600017 and the Bank has confirmed the linking. My A/C No with SBI 11901431524.
Till date I have not received confirmation about the change. In the linkage web site old bank is shown.
I have given service request on 15-10-2018 with Nos 1-1272212085 and 1-1274999145.
How long will it take for the change.

my sb account in SBI bank and my gas agency is indane i have already submit the all documents there but why subsidy gone in my old one account who in HDFC bank and i am not using it in now dayswhat i have to do if i want my subsidy to get in my SBI bank account .

I booked five cylinder and I did not receive subsidy in my account. I called customer care, they said that account isn't registered with NPCI, but I checked it found it was registered with NPCI. What can I do now?

I have linked my aadhar card to Bank account. But in UIDAI website shows bank account linking status is INACTIVE. Bank official says my Aadhaar No. is already linked to bank account No. I requested again to Bank officials My aadhar No. to be connected to NPCI mapper. I submitted to my LPG ID No. I have only one SBI Bank account. I have visited to my aadhar card and my LPG ID No. xerox copies submitted to Bank several times but results are NIL. till date I am not received LPG subsidy. I have also visited the LPG Distributor.

if your adhar is seeded with account then it will be reflected in npci mapper the only way is to deseed adhar and seed again other wise open an account in any bank and seed adhar

I have an account in SBI but my Indane LPG subsidy is being deposited into an unknown account in Andhra Bank. I complained at the Indian Oil website, and the response says the account into which it is deposited bears my name, but the Gas Agency tells me a different name, a person unknown to me, holding an account in Andhra Bank. I would like to get my subsidy deposited into my SBI account. During the last two years of struggle, I have changed my SBI branch. Complained to the agency but the agency staff say I need to contact the bank to rectify the issue. Bankers say my Aadhaar is already linked to my account. I tried to connect my LPG with SBI account but that link is no more there. I'm frustrated. Where can I find a solution?

One year ago I changed my account from Sbi to ICICI. I got lpg subsidy 5 times correctly. From then on I did not receive it. My ICICI a/c is linked with aadhaar, so, I used to get it aadhaar based subsidy. Now how to get it non aadhaar based even though the a/c is linked with aadhaar.
