In a series of tweets, the minister talked about the “consumer-centric initiatives” of the BJP-led government.

“In line with PM Narendra Modi’s vision for a Digital India, these consumer-centric initiatives will make LPG refill booking and new connection registration more convenient and free of cost. This will benefit consumers, especially the elderly and those from rural areas,” Pradhan said.

He also flagged off the first batch of XP100, India’s first indigenously developed 100 Octane petrol from Digboi Refinery. “The country’s oldest operating refinery has joined the elite group of Mathura and Barauni refineries, which will produce this advanced version of petrol,” he said.

“XP 100 was rolled out in 7 more cities today- Bhubaneswar, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Indore, Kochi and Kolkata. Earlier in the 1st phase XP 100 was launched in 10 cities, including in Delhi. This is one more step towards our efforts to improve ease-of-living for citizens,” he added.
