Ujjawala Divas was celebrated quite successfully across Chhattisgarh on the April 20 as part of ongoing Gram Swaraj Abhiyaan.
Most of the Gram Panchayats held such functions and the beneficiaries were told of benefits of the gas cylinders.
It is said that across the 410 Gram Panchayats, an average of 100 beneficiaries were given out gas connections under Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojana.
This made the campaign to encourage healthy cooking quite successful in scope and scale.
The women beneficiaries were also told about the various benefits of using gas cylinders for cooking purposes.
Even the beneficiaries who have been using the gas cylinders shared their experiences with the masses on these functions.
Gas agencies also had their counters on the occasion to get further applications from women beneficiaries for gas connections.>
