Restriction of one cylinder per month removed to benefit consumers; Number of subsidised cylinders will continue to be 12

Currently, the number of LPG cylinders given to a domestic LPG consumer is 12. Alongwith this, there is a restriction of one cylinder per month.

The Government has now decided that while twelve subsidized LPG cylinders per annum will continue to be supplied to all domestic consumers, there will be no separate monthly restriction of one cylinder per month. This changes the earlier decision taken on 28.2.14 and removes the restriction imposed that ordinarily one cylinder be given to each beneficiary every month.

This decision of Government will alleviate difficulties faced by the genuine LPG consumers as the consumption of LPG cylinders is never exactly one per month. This change will meet their genuine requirements subject to their annual entitlement of subsidized cylinders.
