The Government continues to modulate the effective price to consumer for Subsidised Domestic LPG. The prices of non-subsidised domestic LPG are determined by Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies in line with changes in international market.
The prices of domestic LPG are based on international FOB prices of LPG and not of crude oil.
Under PAHAL scheme, LPG subsidy on purchase of refill, which happens at non-subsidised price, is directly transferred into the bank account of the customer subject to the cap of 12 refills in a year. A consumer can purchase LPG refill over and above the quota of twelve subsidised refill by paying non-subsidised price. There is no limit on the number of refills a consumer can purchase for domestic use.
