LPG Cylinder Subsidy Update: Every person suffering from inflation wants to save two paise. No one works without LPG, because food is cooked on it.
The government may have given free LPG cylinders to poor families, but people have to pay money to get it refilled.
Petroleum companies have increased the prices of LPG gas significantly. Even after being cheap, cylinders (LPG Cylinder Price) are available only for Rs 900 or more. When the Coronavirus Pandemic came, the government also stopped giving subsidy money. This added to the difficulties. Even if I start giving subsidy, then such a small amount comes in the bank account, as if cumin in the mouth of a camel.
However, now you will soon be able to get LPG cylinders at a very low price. The reason for this is that the government is again considering restoring the subsidy on LPG cylinders (LPG Cylinder Subsidy Latest Update). A proposal in this regard has been sent to the Finance Ministry. It states that subsidy on LPG is being given in the states of Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Northeast. It needs to be started in other states of the country as well.
If the Finance Ministry approves the proposal, then the government will give a subsidy of Rs 303 to the dealers of petroleum companies and you will get the same discount on the price of LPG cylinder. That is, for the gas cylinder you will get, you will have to pay only Rs 587, not Rs 900.
Yes, for this it is necessary to link your LPG connection with Aadhar card. If you have not yet linked your LPG with Aadhaar, then get it done soon. Get LPG linked with Aadhaar by contacting your dealer and start availing the subsidy. You will also get information about subsidy from time to time on your registered mobile number.
