Telangana govt issues guidelines for the implementation of the subsidised LPG cylinder scheme  

The Mahalakshmi scheme for supply of LPG domestic cylinder at ₹500 per refill will be applicable to white ration card holders who submitted their applications during the Praja Palana held between December 28 and January 6.

The beneficiaries should have active domestic LPG connection in their name and the LPG cylinders which can be availed by the consumers will be limited to average of the last three years of consumption of cylinders by the respective household. After announcing the launch of the scheme from Tuesday, the Government had issued guidelines for the implementation of the scheme.

The Government had launched the scheme with the objective of women empowerment and provide them with smoke free cooking medium. As part of the scheme, the State Government would transfer the required amount in advance to the Oil Marketing Companies (OMC) on a monthly basis. The OMCs on their part would transfer the subsidy amount by Direct Benefit Transfer to the accounts of the beneficiaries. The Government said the method of release of subsidy was on pilot basis and directed the Civil Supplies and Finance departments to explore and come up with model for delivery of cylinder on payment of Rs. 500 only.
