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.
