How Non-Subsidised LPG Prices Have Been Changed In Recent Past
(Since May, the price of non-subsidised cylinders in the national capital have remained around the levels last seen in September last year)
Currently, the government subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2 kilograms each per household in a year. The consumer has to make any additional purchases of LPG cylinders at the market price.
The amount of subsidy provided by the government on the annual quota of 12 refills varies from month to month. The subsidy is determined broadly by factors such as crude oil and foreign exchange rates.
