Government’s Excess Savings Claim on Cash Transfer Regarding LPG Might Not be True
According to a report from the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), the claims regarding the subsidy savings by the government may be excessive. Although there has been no hint of scam on the LPG Direct Benefits Transfer or LPG DBT, the savings might actually vary.
According to the audit, savings from those who have voluntarily given up their subsidy and DBT has added up to around Rs.2,000 crore and not more. The remaining amount saved is mainly due to the steep reduction in prices of LPG that is imported by India.
