Nearly half of India's households don't have access to clean cooking fuel. Instead, they rely on firewood, coal, dung, and other unclean fuel sources for cooking - the equivalent to smoking 400 cigarettes an hour, and lead to 500,000 deaths per year in India. To combat this problem, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG) launched its flagship scheme — the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana — which aims to provide free LPG (liquified petroleum gas) connections to 50 million women under the poverty line by 2019. With the help of SocialCops, the MoPNG used data intelligence to carry out the scheme effectively. We focused on three key aspects of the scheme: opening new LPG distribution centers in places with the most impact, tracking the LPG application process, and ensuring that new LPG connections were installed effectively and safely.

Ujjwala is hailed as the most efficient scheme executed by Govt of India, and 2 crore connections have been installed in under a year - being the only govt. scheme to surpass its targets. Find out how, in this talk where we'll take you behind the scenes on how a leader ran one of the most complex schemes in the country effectively using data intelligence and the latest geospatial analytics.
