I'll be moving into an apartment in Kolkata in next few days and am not sure how to get a gas cylinder for cooking. Some people say this is complicated and some say not. How do I go about it? I will be living in Udita complex off E.M. Bypass. Do I also need someone to show me how to hook it up?

Please search the site for "gas connection". You will find a number of experiences and some advice, and, although it may not be specific to Kolkata, it should be helpful.

There are two choices:

1. Government-subsidized --- still quite a lot cheaper, although the subsidy has been slashed recently.

2. Private supply --- more expensive, but fewer bureaucratic hurdles.

If you are cooking, every day, for a family the subsidy really makes a difference. If, like us, you make a cylinder last three to six months, you won't.

New Gas cylinder

There are three LPG supplier in Kolkata viz., Indianoil, HP and BP. First you find out which one is nearest to your locality. Then one photo identity and one address proof are required for the new connection.They take some deposits for the cylinder and for regulator.
