New Delhi: After facing stern opposition from common man over capping six subsidized LPG cylinders to them, the Centre is mulling to extend this quota to ten.

Sources said that the Central Government is contemplating to give subsidy on 8to10 cooking gas cylinders. The UPA’s move is being seen as an effort to pacify its angry ally Mamata Banerjee who has given 72-hours ultimatum to the government for rollback of its decision.

The decision of limiting 6 cylinders for every household annually at the rate of Rs 376 and Rs 780 for the seventh cylinder onwards has also come as a shock for the common man.
