This means that before the festivals like Diwali and Karwa Chhath, common man will get relief from high price.

Meanwhile, people are also discussing on LPG Subsidy. However, the price of LPG has come down in the international market  which makes the government to lessen the subsidy amount. In May, June, July, August, September and October, a nominal subsidy reached the customers' account which made them worried for the subsidy.

Why consumers are getting less Subsidy?

People's AGPG subsidy is coming very less. The reason behind this is that the price of domestic gas has come down in May, June, July, August, September and now October this year and customers have received very little subsidy. A nominal subsidy of Rs 37 has been received in the accounts.

It may be noted that the subsidy and the price of non-subsidized cooking gas cylinders have become almost equal since May this year due to the continuous reduction in subsidy by the government. The government puts the difference in the price of subsidy and non-subsidized LPG cylinder in the form of subsidy to the customer's account.
