Under the government’s Ujjwala Yojana, LPG Cylinder beneficiaries will now receive a subsidy of Rs 300 on gas cylinders, an increase of Rs 100 from the previous subsidy of Rs 200.
In a significant move to assist economically disadvantaged households grappling with escalating gas prices, the Union Cabinet has granted approval for an enhanced subsidy under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana.
As part of this initiative, beneficiaries of the Ujjwala Yojana will now receive a generous subsidy of Rs 300 on gas cylinders, marking a notable increase from the previous subsidy amount of Rs 200. Consequently, Ujjwala beneficiaries will now have access to gas cylinders at the subsidized rate of Rs 600. This decision is expected to bring relief to countless economically challenged households, particularly in light of the current high inflation rates and the continuous surge in gas prices.
