Govt to give Rs 200 per cylinder subsidy for these people - Check details


Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the government would pay a subsidy of
Rs 200 per LPG cylinder to the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana's nearly 9 crore beneficiaries. She stated that the funding would be limited to 12 cylinders per year. This was one of a slew of big-ticket initiatives to combat price rises and inflation in India as a result of the epidemic and the crisis in Ukraine, which has pushed up oil and food costs around the world.

For the second time in a month, the price of LPG (liquid petroleum gas, which is used to cook food by millions of Indian people) increased by Rs 3.50. Prices in India have surpassed Rs 1,000.

A 14.2 kg cylinder cost Rs 1,003 in Delhi and Mumbai before today's announcement, Rs 1,029 in Kolkata, and Rs 1,018.5 in Chennai.

Sitharaman also reduced the central excise duty on fuel and diesel by Rs 8 per litre and Rs 6 per litre, respectively. After crude oil prices surged in the aftermath of the Ukraine crisis, petrol and diesel prices in several regions of the country have surpassed Rs 100 per litre.
