How eKYC Works

During LPG cylinder delivery, delivery personnel verify customer credentials using a mobile app. Aadhaar details are captured, and customers receive an OTP (One-Time Password) to complete the verification.

Customers can also visit distributor showrooms for convenience.

Self-Service Option

Additionally, LPG consumers can independently complete eKYC by downloading apps from companies like IOC and HPCL.
