Gas dealers and retailers will begin distribution of application forms for cooking gas consumer cards in the capital from today. The Ministry of Commerce and Supplies has already provided the application forms to cooking gas dealers and retailers yesterday. Consumers will be required to submit the forms to obtain cooking gas consumer cards. 
Consumers can receive the application forms from gas dealers and retailers verified by the Gas Dealers Federation Nepal (GDFN). Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) will issue the cooking gas consumer cards to consumers after collecting the forms. The forms can be downloaded from NOC's website, or can be purchased from retailers and dealers for Rs 10 each.
According to NOC officials, it will take at least two weeks to process the application forms and issue consumer cards. NOC will provide 'red' cards for household users and 'blue' cards for businesses. NOC plans to provide cooking gas to only card-holding consumers. Household users will get a cylinder of cooking gas at subsidized rate while businesses will have to pay the market price. NOC currently sells a cylinder of cooking gas for Rs 1,415 while the cost price is Rs 2,113.
