Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Friday inaugurated an all India round the clock helpline — 1906 for LPG leaks.
Each oil marketing company used to have a separate helpline for gas leaks. Consumers now have to just dial 1906, to receive prompt help, Mr. Pradhan said.
The number – ‘1906’ is a call-centre based service, available pan-India to all LPG customers of the three public sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs), a government statement said.
The helpline offers services in nine vernacular languages – Marathi; Gujarati; Bengali; Oriya; Assamese; Tamil; Telugu; Kannada; and Malayalam- apart from Hindi and English, to ensure that the callers are comfortable in registering their grievances.
The number was not toll-free at the moment, but Mr. Pradhan had asked the heads of the OMCs to make it toll-free soon.
