Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) 2024: In May 2016, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOPNG) introduced the ‘Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana’ (PMUY) as a flagship initiative with the aim of providing access to clean cooking fuel, such as LPG, to rural and underprivileged households. These households were previously reliant on traditional cooking fuels like firewood, coal, and cow-dung cakes, which not only had adverse effects on the health of rural women but also contributed to environmental degradation.
