Give up LPG Subsidy

LPG subsidy is a big advantage to Indian citizens, especially to lower and middle class citizens. However, recently the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi appealed to citizens who were financially well off to voluntarily give up their subsidy so that the amount that is saved can be utilized to provide benefits to those who come from low-income households.

Although having an LPG subsidy is beneficial in numerous ways, giving up LPG subsidy makes a lot of difference to those who cannot afford to purchase cooking gas on a regular basis. Individuals who are well off can comfortably give up their subsidy in order to help those less fortunate. This will also reduce the subsidy bill of the Government of India.

In case individuals wish to give up their subsidy but are unsure regarding the process, they can follow the steps mentioned below and give up the subsidy. Regardless of the LPG provider such as HP Gas, Indane or Bharat Gas, LPG subsidy can be surrendered quite easily.

  • Stabilising Economy – The Government of India has spent Rs.40,000 crores in 2013 and 2014 for LPG subsidies. If the economically stable people of India give up the LPG subsidies, then the amount spent by the Government will reduce.

  • Providing Access to the Poor – At present, the individuals who fall under the lower economic bracket use wood for cooking. LPG can be offered to these poor sections if the well to do people of India give up on their LPG subsidies.
  • Helps in Providing Strength to the Agricultural Sector – Agriculture forms the backbone of India. If the Government recovers money spent on the LPG subsidies, then it can be used to offer new technologies to the farmers for carrying out their work in a better way.
