In Odisha, Oil Marketing Companies will engage more than 10,000 rural women as 'Ujjwala Didis' to act as grassroots energy ambassadors across the state to ensure sustainability of LPG use. 

Chief General Manager, IOCL & SLC Oil Industry, Odisha, Subhajit Ghosh told reporters in Bhubaneswar that Ujjwala Didis will act as a bridge between existing and prospective LPG consumers and the distributors in the state. 

He said, Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana has contributed to LPG growth in Odisha almost single-handedly, since its launch in 2016. He said, the state saw phenomenal growth in LPG households from 20 lakh in 2014 to almost 78 lakh in February, 2019.
