As most of the activities were stopped in the COVID time, the government was facing issuing generating any revenues. Providing LPG Subsidies became a huge burden for the government in the pandemic situation, therefore, the government stopped the LPG subsidy to reduce the firm’s losses and to meet their expenses so that they can keep the economy balanced as much as they could.
When did the LPG subsidy start again and why?
In the month of September 2021, the government announced to restart the LPG subsidy as so many people were suffering (of the middle class) as the price of the LPG cylinder is almost Rs 1000 and there are chances of an increase in prices as well. Therefore, the central government started the LPG subsidy scheme again.
