Opt Out of Subsidy

Domestic  LPG is heavily subsidized by the Government of India and every cylinder that we use in our kitchen carries a subsidy of about Rs.200/-. This translates to a huge annual subsidy burden on the Government, that drains precious resources which otherwise could have been used in developmental activities.

Subsidy on domestic LPG instead of being broad-based, needs to be focussed at the truly needy. Fortunately, a section of aware and ethical citizens is evolving, who is not in favour of subsidies and would rather pay the full price for the products & services it avails, thereby making a personal contribution towards Nation-building. There is a need to spread this awakening all LPG consumers to voluntarily give up LPG subsidy and buy cylinders at nonsubsidized rates.

Accordingly, the Government has launched the ‘Opt out of subsidy’ scheme which is aimed at motivating LPG users who can afford to pay the market price for LPG, voluntarily surrender their LPG subsidy.

If you want to be a part of the Nation-Building exercise, do opt out of subsidy today.
