Kerala to provide 3 more subisdised LPG cylinders over cap of six
Thiruvananthapuram: Congress-led UDF government in Kerala on Wednesday night decided to provide three subsidised LPG cylinders over and above the cap of six fixed by the Centre to all categories of consumers.
Addressing a press meet after a cabinet meeting, which endorsed UDF`s recommendation in this regard, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the number of cylinders used by a customer last fiscal would be taken as the base with a maximum of nine cylinders.
"One connection per house will be strictly followed for getting subsidied cylinders. Details will be worked out with oil companies. The state’s additional burden on this account will come to about Rs 110 crore to Rs 120 crore," he said.
Earlier in the day, a UDF liaison committee meeting requested the government to extend the supply of subsidised LPG cylinders to Above Poverty Line category also.
The government had last week decided to supply three additional subsidised LPG cylinders to people belonging to the Below Poverty Line (BPL) category.
