Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas
Government of India


Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas
Government of India

This nation, our Government, our systems...
they are all for the poor. Our aim is to empower
the poor to fight poverty. We have shown how
the petroleum sector is for the poor

Shri Narendra Modi
Prime Minister of India

Ujjwala Yojana was rolled out by Hon’ble Prime Minister on May 1st, 2016, and will
certainly go a long way in emancipating our mothers and sisters from the drudgery
of unhealthy smoke-filled kitchens.

Dharmendra Pradhan
Minister of State (I/C)
Petroleum & Natural Gas

Dear Friends,
Two years back, the people of India gave an unambiguous, resounding mandate
to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) under the visionary leadership of
Shri Narendra Modi to bring about a radical change in the nation’s governance.
Hon'ble Prime Minister in his first speech in Parliament clearly said " our
Government is dedicated to the welfare of the poor; whatever we do, will be for the
welfare of the poor". In other words the mandate was given for Pro-poor
government. The Government as envisioned by Hon'ble Prime Minister has always
worked with the dictum of 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas' and brought major reforms
based on the principle of ' Minimum Government & Maximum Governance' .
At Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, we have set out our goal to light up the
lives of millions of our fellow countrymen, and especially of those who are the
poorest among the poor, by providing clean and reliable energy at an affordable
cost. Today, I can state with pride and satisfaction that, propelled by the policies of
the NDA government, the past two years have turned out to be a watershed
moment in our country’s economic growth.
The last two years have seen a renewed thrust to put the LPG segment on a fasttrack. PAHAL is an important initiative implemented nationwide, which has been
acknowledged by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's largest cash
benefit transfer scheme. The GiveItUp campaign for voluntarily giving up LPG
subsidy has become a huge success with more than 1 crore people signing up till
now. In a historic move, the government has decided to provide free LPG
connections to 5 crore women from BPL households. This scheme – Pradhan Mantri

The Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas has pursued multiple initiatives to fulfill
the ever increasing energy demand. Robust policy measures have been adopted to
give our Oil Exploration & Production sector a major push. Simultaneously,
diplomatic engagements with Oil producing countries have been accelerated with
an objective of securing Oil equity abroad.
Our mandate is to reduce import dependence by 10 percent by 2022, the year
when our nation completes 75 years of independence. In order to achieve that, we
are revisiting our sedimentary basins to scout not only for Oil and Gas but also for
unconventional energy resources like Shale Oil/Gas and Gas Hydrates. The
Hydrocarbon Exploration Licensing Policy (HELP) has been formulated to streamline
the processes and attract investment in our upstream sector. We are looking at
increasing the usage of Bio-fuels and Natural Gas in our energy basket.
Hon'ble Prime Minister's vision of the development of Eastern India has also
been our vital objective. In liaison with what he once rightly said,- ' India's progress is
incomplete without the development of Eastern India' , the Government is doing
everything possible for a holistic development of the Eastern States. We have also
given special thrust on integrating North East with Hydrocarbon landscape of the
country, through North East Hydrocarbon Vision Document 2030.
Over the past two years, we have consciously attempted to transform the
Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas into an efficient and transparent economic
ministry centred on people’s welfare. I remain optimistic that with the support and
co-operation of all stakeholders in the coming years, we will continue to make rapid
strides towards a cleaner, greener, and energy efficient India.

With my very best wishes,
