Recently, on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, the prices of gas cylinders were reduced. With a discount of Rs 200, the price of LPG cylinder was reduced from Rs 1100 to Rs 900. Whereas due to the subsidy of Rs 200 for the beneficiaries of Ujjwala scheme, the same cylinder used to cost Rs 700.
Subsidy increased on Ujjwala scheme

This means that till now the LPG cylinder which was available for Rs 700, will now be available to the beneficiaries of Ujjwala scheme for Rs 600. Heartfelt gratitude to Modi ji for this decision taken in the interest of mother power before the upcoming festivals.
