During the Union cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the Centre reduced the price of cooking gas by ₹200 per cylinder for all domestic consumers. An additional subsidy under the Ujjwala scheme has been approved 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 beneficiaries will be 703.

“PM Modi has decided to reduce the price of domestic LPG gas cylinders by Rs 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 persons 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 added.

75 lakh women will receive free gas connections.

On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan and Onam, the government has decided to offer 75 lakh women free gas connections through the Ujjwala program, Thakur said in his remarks to the cabinet briefing.

According to the project, these ladies will be given a free gas burner, first cooking gas cylinder, and pipe.The overall number of Ujjwala scheme beneficiaries would reach 10.35 crore if 75 lakh women have gas connections.
