LPG subsidy for Ujjwala beneficiaries hiked to Rs 300

The Government today raised
the subsidy provided to poor
women, who got free cooking gas
connections under the Ujjwala
Yojana, to Rs 300 per cylinder as it
looked to blunt opposition criticism
of high fuel prices.
The Cabinet Committee on
Economic Affairs raised the
subsidy from Rs 200 per 14.2-kg cylinders for up to 12 refils
per year to Rs 300 per bottle,
Union Information and
Broadcasting Minister Anurag
Thakur told reporters here.
The move will benefit 9.6
crore families.
Ahead of assembly elections

in five states, including Madhya
Pradesh and Rajasthan, the government
had in late August cut
cooking gas price by Rs 200 per
cylinder. After this, LPG cylinder
price came down to Rs 903.
For Ujjwala beneficiaries,
the price was Rs 703 after considering
the Rs 200 per cylinder
subsidy, which is directly paid
into the bank accounts of connection
holders.
After the increase in subsidy,
a 14.2-kg LPG cylinder will
now cost Rs 603 for Ujjwala
beneficiaries.(PTI)
