After this price cut, the actual cost per cylinder for PMUY families in Delhi would be Rs 703.
29 August, New Delhi The Government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has announced a significant decrease in the price of cooking gas, which would provide relief to people throughout the country.
According to the government, a 14.2 kg LPG cylinder would cost Rs 200 less starting on August 30 in all markets around the nation. The move, for example, would reduce the price of a 14.2 Kg cylinder from the current Rs 1103 per cylinder to a more reasonable Rs 903 per cylinder in Delhi. “This is a gift to crores of my sisters in the country on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan,” stated Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Our government will always make every effort to raise living standards and help the working class and impoverished.
This decrease is in addition to the PMUY families’ current targeted subsidy of Rs 200 per cylinder. Therefore, after this discount, the actual price in Delhi for PMUY families would be Rs 703 per cylinder.
There are more over 31 billion domestic LPG customers in the nation, including 9.6 billion PMUY eligible households, therefore this decrease will benefit all of the nation’s LPG consumers. The government will soon begin distributing PMUY connections to 75 lac women from low-income homes who do not already have an LPG connection in order to process any outstanding PMUY applications and deliver deposit-free LPG connections to all qualified households. As a result, the overall number of PMUY recipients would rise from 9.6 million to 10.35 million.
These choices are a result of the government’s continual efforts to lessen citizen debt and advance family welfare. The decrease in cooking gas costs is a reflection of the government’s dedication to placing the welfare of its people first and ensuring affordable access to basic necessities.
The decision was welcomed by Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, who said, “We recognise the constraints experienced by people in managing their finances. The decrease in cooking gas costs supports the government’s overarching objective of maintaining affordable access to necessities while also directly assisting families and people.
The cost of living is anticipated to go down for a large segment of society as a result of the drop in cooking gas costs. The proactive action of the government is expected to result in large cost savings for families, significantly increasing people’ discretionary income.
The Government has been making efforts to lessen the burden on the populace, and this drop in the price of cooking gas is evidence of the Government’s receptivity to their needs and unshakable commitment to their welfare.
