In Nagaland, the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana has come as a great relief to women living in the remotest areas of Kiphire district.

The scheme has proved beneficial for women of BPL households in Kiphire district as they get access to clean cooking fuel. They can safeguard their health and save time for other household work.

Kiphire District is one of the remotest districts in Nagaland, however, that has not deterred the efforts of the district administrative and the nodal department the Food & Civil Supplies to introduce the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana to poor women who dreamt of having their own clean cooking LPG fuel.

Now the villages are saving approximately 10,000 standing trees a month covering an area of approximately 16,000 sq km in the district. 

After empowering the rural women with LPG gas connection, the lifestyle of these women in the district has improved as they don’t need to spend much time in forest to collect firewood.
