The 3 govt-owned OMCs-IndianOil, BPCL and HPCL-together meet the country's entire LPG cylinder demand

After consumers exhaust the year’s quota of six subsidised liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders announced by the Union government, oil marketing companies (OMCs) would charge them at the market rate for additional cylinders. This is despite several Congress-ruled states saying they would provide three additional subsidised cylinders. For these states, OMCs want the price differential for the cylinders to be transferred directly to consumers.

In the first price revision after the government capped the number of subsidised cylinders for consumers, domestic liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) has become nearly 17 per cent dearer, thanks to firm international prices. From October 1, the consumer price of every non-subsidised domestic LPG cylinder has risen to Rs 883 from Rs 756 last month.

Securing timely payment from states against sale of subsidised cylinders beyond six would be a challenge

Oil marketing companies (OMCs) are wary of the populist step of states to increase the number of subsidised cylinders. Securing timely payment from states against sale of subsidised cylinders beyond six would be a challenge, the companies said. According to last week’s decision, a consumer would get only six subsidised cylinders a year, at Rs 399 in the capital, and would have to pay around Rs 750 for each additional refill. But Delhi, Haryana and Assam have announced a subsidy cover for three more cylinders.
