The price of domestic liquid petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders will not be increased and the number of subsidised refills given to consumers would continue, Union petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Friday.
“LPG will be provided to the consumers at the same rate at which it is being made available now. No additional burden will be imposed on them. The subsidy and the number of subsidised cylinders that people are getting will be continued by our government,” Pradhan told reporters here.
About petrol and diesel prices, he said these are big issues and the central government is paying attention to them. “Petrol prices have been out of control since 2006 when it was connected to the market price mechanism. Diesel prices are still under control with subsidies.”
