LPG, the price of domestic gas, has been steadily rising. Prices have doubled in the last seven years. In the meantime, there is good news for consumers. Once again LPG gas cylinders are being subsidized. The subsidy money has been transferred to the customer’s account. According to sources, LPG is now being given to consumers at a subsidy of Rs 79.26 per cylinder.
Meanwhile, some consumers are reportedly getting a subsidy of Rs 158.52 or Rs 237.78. So in such a situation, there is still confusion. Also, for the last several days, there have been cases of non-payment of subsidy in the customer’s account. However, now the complaints have stopped coming.
