Bangla Hunt Desk: Government Domestic Gas Subsidy will not be available on liquefied petroleum gas cylinders this September. There is a big reason behind the government not giving this subsidy. And the main reason is that the price of LPG in the international market has come down, the price of domestic gas cylinders in India has come down by 162.50 paise to 561.50 paise. As a result, the price of subsidized and non-subsidized gas has become equal. And for this reason, the subsidy money will not be credited to your account this month.
According to media reports, the central government decided to end the subsidy in May when it changed the price of domestic LPG cylinders. And that is why in May, June and July the subsidy money was not deposited in the bank accounts of the customers. The market price of gas cylinders or the price of unsubsidised cylinders has come down a lot. And because of this, the price of non-subsidized and subsidized gas cylinders has become almost the same, which is why the government has now stopped subsidizing domestic gas cylinders.
Subsidies on cooking gas have been steadily declining for the past one year. Due to this, the price of subsidized gas cylinder has gone up by Rs 100. At the same time, the subsidy on cooking gas has gone up, with the market price of 14.2 kg of cooking gas in the country's capital, Delhi, being Rs 638 in July. That has now come down to Rs 594.
