Govt has no immediate plan to remove subsidy on LPG, says Pradhan

Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan said the government had no immediate plan to remove the subsidy on Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).

Pradhan, said the issue of who should get the subsidy and who should not needs to be debated.

Earlier on Friday, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had stated that the government was considering removal of subsidy on the cooking gas for well-off consumers.

The removal of the subsidy on LPG for better off consumers would help the government to reduce its expenditure thereby aiding it to curb the fiscal deficit.
