News of LPG subsidy: This is good news for LPG cylinder users. Basically, the central government limited the subsidy available on LPG cylinders. Now millions of consumers have to pay the market price. Under the Ajola scheme, only poor women and other beneficiaries who get free connection will now get subsidy. Oil Secretary Pankaj Jain said that from June 2022, no subsidy will be given on LPG. The subsidy is given there, which was announced by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on March 21. He said there had been no subsidy for LPG consumers since the early days of the Corona epidemic. Since then, the same subsidy has been offered to the beneficiaries of Ajola.
Revenue of Rs 6,100 crore will be affected.
Union Finance Minister Sita Raman said that the beneficiaries of Ajola scheme would get a subsidy of Rs. 200 per cylinder on 12 cylinders every year. The Finance Minister had announced this while announcing reduction in petrol and diesel prices. The finance minister had said, “The move will affect an annual revenue of about Rs 6,100 crore.”
The government is dedicated to welfare.
Nirmala Sita Raman tweeted that our government is dedicated to the welfare of the poor. We have taken many steps to help the poor and middle class. In our time, average inflation has been lower than in previous governments.
