New Delhi: The Central government has given nod to cap subsidized LPG cylinders but did not make its stand clear on how to implement it systematically. The LPG distributors are clueless about the future course of action.

The distributors said that they were neither informed nor cleared anything about how to supply subsidized and unsubsidized gas cylinders to the customers. Apart from this, distributors are also demanding hike in commission due to increased cost.  

The All India LPG Distributors’ Federation president Pratap Doshi said if government does not pay attention to our demands and fails to come up with a proper mechanism, we will go on indefinite strike.

LPG Distributors will implement this scheme but they were not taken into confidence while taking such decision said Doshi.

The oil marketing companies told us to charge partial increased price from customers and to recover remaining amount after finalization of price added Doshi.

But customers would not agree to this proposal. In this situation Petroleum Ministry and Oil marketing companies need to provide solution for this problem.
In fact, government has not decided the price of unsubsidized LPG cylinders so far and is working on a formula to calculate price.

In order to lessen the financial burden, distributors have demanded that the commission being paid to them by the oil companies should be increased from Rs 25.83 per cylinder to Rs 48.
