Now, deadline to fill KYC forms November 15

The deadline for filling up forms by LPG consumers as part of the exercise to weed out multiple connections has been extended to November 15, 2012, sources said. The oil companies had set October 31, 2012, as the last date for customers to submit their forms and papers.

The customers in general and those with ghost connections have to fill 'Know your customer' (KYC) forms, but the second category has to comply with the requirement on priority. Customers with the same name and address, whose connections have been blocked, are advised to fill the KYC forms.

The others who are required to fill KYC forms are those having different names and the same address.

But long queues of customers were seen on Thursday, as the message about the KYC process was not understood, sources said.

"The date for filling of KYC forms has been extended for persons with multiple connections up to November 15, 2012," Shabhri Mandrekar, director of civil supplies, said. The oil companies are enforcing a 'One household, one connection policy'. But customers, who have no problem about their connections, are requested not to fill the forms right now but they will be covered in a phased manner, a source at the Hindustan Petroleum company said.
