Frankline Sunday: State goes hi-tech in new bid to curb illegal gas refilling

The Government is set to introduce biometric tracking of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders in a move aimed at curbing adulteration and illegal refilling. The Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, which is spear heading the project, also expects the biometrically tagged cylinders to generate crucial data on consumer spending habits and also provide records of any illegal refills.
