Ujjwala 2.0 Scheme: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched the second phase of ‘Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana’ from Mahoba district of Uttar Pradesh. On this occasion, he said that now the migrant laborers will get gas connection even without address proof.
PM Modi said, “Many of our colleagues from all over UP and other states, including Bundelkhand, go from village to city to work, go to other states. But there they face the problem of proof of address. Similarly, the Ujjwala 2.0 scheme will give maximum relief to lakhs of families.
He further said, “Now my labor colleagues do not have to wander here and there for proof of address. The government has full faith in your honesty. All you have to do is give a self-declaration of your address, that is, by writing yourself and you will get a gas connection.
