During the Union cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the Centre reduced the price of cooking gas by ₹200 per cylinder for all domestic users. An extra subsidy under the Ujjwala plan has been authorized by the cabinet. The extra subsidy is ₹200. For Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) recipients, the subsidy will now be ₹400 per cylinder.

A 14.2-kg LPG cylinder currently costs ₹1,103 in New Delhi. It will cost ₹903 starting Wednesday. Similarly, after accounting for the ongoing ₹200 per cylinder subsidy, the price for Ujjwala recipients will be ₹703.

“PM Modi has decided to reduce the price of domestic LPG cylinders by ₹200 for all users…This is a gift from PM Narendra Modi to the women of the country on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan and Onam,” Union Minister Anurag Thakur stated.

When we first came to power in 2014, just ₹14.5 crore people had household LPG connections, according to Thakur. “Today, that number has increased to ₹33 crore, of which ₹9.6 crore have been distributed under the Ujjwala scheme,” he said.
