Govt likely to raise cap on subsidised LPG cylinders
Zeebiz Bureau

New Delhi: In what could be a pleasant development for the common man, the government is likely to raise the cap on subsidised cooking gas (LPG) from existing six cylinders per household in a year, reports said on Friday.

As per sources, Congress wants to raise the cap to nine cylinders in a year, however, the decision in this regard will be taken only after due consultations.

The government had in September restricted the supply of subsidised domestic LPG cylinders to six per household in a year.

Earlier on Thursday, the price of LPG cylinders, which consumers buy beyond the cheaper quota of six cylinders, was hiked by Rs 26.50 to Rs 922 per unit on firming international rates.

However facing stiff opposition, the government later back tracked and put on hold the increase in price of cooking gas cylinders.
