Buying LPG Cylinder? Alert! You must do this first or suffer loss
LPG cylinders are a must now in every household. However, there is one big problem that everyone should beware of as otherwise chances of a gas leak and a cylinder blast go high.
The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana has an objective to provide an LPG Gas Cylinder in each and every household, especially in the remote parts of India. In urban India, even though many have started using PNG-connection for their cooking purposes, a huge number of people use LPG cylinders. So, both in the urban and rural parts of India people depend heavily on these LPG cylinders. However, when your LPG cylinder is empty and you are getting it replaced, you must do something critically important - you need to check its expiry date before allowing it inside your home. Yes, that is right. The reason for that is because your LPG cylinder has an expiry date and an expired cylinder can be dangerous to you and your household.
Notably, you should know that your LPG connection provides insurance to the family and the household in case there is an accident caused by some problems in the gas cylinder. However, if the LPG cylinder that caused the disaster was an expired one, then the company will deny your compensation or insurance or both. So, you must check the expiry of the LPG cylinder during LPG replacement process.

A means Jan-March quarter, B means April to June quarter, C means July to September quarter and similarly D means October to December quarter.

When the cylinder expires, its seal becomes loose and chances of gas leak go high. Chances of LPG cylinder blast also goes high in such cases. So, one must know how to decode the LPG cylinder expiry.
