As part of ongoing Gram Swaraj Abhiyaan, Ujjawala Divas was celebrated in village Bhanesar of Masturi.
On the occasion, gas connections were disbursed to the eligible beneficiaries.
In the Bhanesar village camp itself, around 100 beneficiaries were given gas connection.
Commissioner TC Mahawar and Collector P Dayanand were on dais and symbolically handed over gas connection to 10 beneficiaries.
Speaking on the occasion, Commissioner TC Mahawar said that gas cooking would lead to non-polluted cooking and it also helps women’s health.
He also said that women need to be aware of their bank account and transactions.
He also encouraged them to get their Aadhaar numbers linked to the bank account.
This would make it easy for the women beneficiaries to avail subsidy facilities, he said.
Collector P Dayanand said that in all Ujjawala Divas camps have been organized in 36 locations across the district.
He said that so far over 1.35 lakh gas connections have been disbursed.
With minor safety precautions, gas cooking is completely safe for women, he said.
Host of BJP leaders and administration officials were also present on the occasion.>
