  • Subsidy on cooking gas eliminated by Government of India

    With the cost of cooking gas becoming closer to market rates on account of the fall in oil prices globally, the government of India has now removed the subsidies that it had provided earlier for domestic cooking gas. The subsidies were earlier put in place in order to make LPG gas cylinders, which were expensive for the common man, more accessible for them. As of 1 September, the price of bothsubsidised and unsubsidised gas cylinders stand at the same price of Rs.594 for a 14.2 kg cylinder. This means there is no need for the government to pay the subsidy into the account of beneficiaries under the Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme (DBTS). With the price gap between subsidised and non-subsidised narrowing down so much, the government has not transferred any cash for subsidies into the accounts of beneficiaries for the last 4 months. If subsidies are eliminated, the government can save up to Rs.20,000 crore in FY21. There are currently 26.12 crore eligible customers for the relief under the DBTS out of which 18 crore do not receive subsidy due to the latest developments. As of now, the government is only transferring cash into the accounts of 8 crore beneficiaries for three free LPG cylinders during the coronavirus pandemic amounting to more than Rs.9700 crore.

  • Fall in oil prices result in subsidy on gas cylinders dipping to zero

    With the recent fall in the prices of non-subsidised LPG cylinders and the government’s decision to increase the price of the subsidised cylinder over the past few months have resulted in zero subsidies for the first time in many years, according to reports.

    As international prices of oil crashed in the market which caused a glut in the supply due to a crash in the demand in the light of COVID-19, oil companies had to sell the cylinders above the cost to consumers unlike before. With this, the subsidy was brought down to zero. The market prices of LPG is decided based on the import-parity price of Saudi LPG prices along with a lag of one month.

    The build-up of the price includes various cost elements which are fixed at price including bottling charges, cylinder cost, inland freight, dealer commission, GST, return on investment, etc.
