Inspection and Certificate

Yesterday, there was an inspection, at my home.

People from the Indane Gas Company, are visiting the homes of people, who have taken up gas connection with them. So, my home, of course, the gas cylinder, the gas stove, the rubber tube were all inspected.

And I was given the Certificate of total compliance with all the rules. Β And the officials were quite happy to see a clean kitchen – thank God, someone noticed and appreciated. πŸ˜‰

I am happy – I’ve done or rather followed all the rules, owing to common sense. πŸ™‚

But, I heard from those officials, that there are many people around, who don’t take the positioning of the gas cylinder or the gas stove so important.

So, these officials go door to door, inspect and give certificate of compliance. Β If they don’t comply with the rules, they ask them to change things in the kitchen and come for inspection again.

Some points for you and your safety :

– The cylinder should always be kept vertically.

– The gas stove, the rubber tube should be ISI branded – it’s better to buy them from the Gas Agency itself, than buying some cheap quality third-party ones.

– Awareness about fixing and removing the regulator, the changing of gas cylinders, checking to see if there is any gas leak and knowing the emergency numbers were a few to remember.

– Try to have the diya away from the kitchen – it’s better if the Puja room is not in the kitchen.

– It’s better if the refrigerator is placed outside the kitchen.

– Never keep things on the cylinder’s circular rod on top.

– Don’t keep the cylinder in the balcony, where its exposed to sunlight or rains.

All these might sound silly, as it did to me. But when the officials explained that these silly reasons are sometimes the basic reasons for some accidents, I immediately thought of writing it all down, to share it with you all.

Please follow the given guidelines and a have a safe cooking experience. πŸ™‚

  1. Uma even here one guy from indane gas came home to check my cyclinder inspite of me telling him that i don’t have indane gas.I was planning to change the tube and i was forced to buy the tube from him as he told me that the date of expiry on my tube is 2009.Good that he came i brought that tube.

    Even i thought how ignorant people can be when he was explaining the things to me.


    1. Emergency numbers are there in the bill slip, you get with the cylinder. Check it out. πŸ™‚

      Some times, space problems force us to keep the fridge in the kitchen…I think its good that it is away from the cylinder. πŸ™‚
