The Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojna reportedly provided 80 million households in India with LPG connection by the end of 2019. However, recent studies have found that access to LPG cylinder hasn’t led to a proportionate increase in the LPG use among rural households. What prevents households to use LPG, which is easier to cook on and has significant health benefits?

Lovey vividly demonstrates the many barriers to clean fuel use through a series of photos captured during her fieldwork in Uttar Pradesh. Take a look at her photo essay published recently in the Economic and Political Weekly!
