Beneficiaries of the Ujjwala scheme are only eligible for a restricted amount of cooking gas LPG subsidy. As a result, the remaining users, including households, will have to pay market prices for their LPG cylinders. On Thursday, Oil Secretary Pankaj Jain stated that there had been no subsidy for LPG consumers from the beginning of the Covid epidemic, but that one had been provided for Ujjwala recipients since then. Only the 9 crore impoverished women and other beneficiaries who acquired LPG connections under the Ujjwala scheme were eligible for cooking gas subsidies, according to the Centre. A 14.2-kg LPG cylinder costs INR 1,003 in Delhi. Beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana would receive a cash subsidy of Rs. 200 in their bank account. That means Ujjwala beneficiaries will only have to spend INR 803 for a 14.2 kilogramme cylinder, compared to INR 1,003 for the cylinder in the national capital.
