In a major relief to consumers, the Centra has announced reduction of cooking gas price by Rs 200 per cylinder which will be effective from tomorrow.
According to a statement, the price of a 14.2 Kg LPG cylinder will be reduced by Rs 200 in all markets across the country.
The statement reads that this across the board reduction is in addition to the existing targeted subsidy of Rs 200 per cylinder to PMUY households, which will continue.
“For PMUY households therefore, the effective price in Delhi after this reduction will be Rs 703 per cylinder. It may be noted that there are more than 31 crore domestic LPG consumers in the country including 9.6 crore PMUY beneficiary families and this reduction will help all LPG consumers in the country. To clear pending PMUY applications and to provide deposit free LPG connection to all eligible households, government will shortly start distribution of PMUY connections to 75 lacs women from poor households who do not have an LPG connection,” it reads.
