Currently, the government subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2-kg each per households in a year by providing the subsidy amount directly in the bank accounts. For any additional purchases, the consumer has to bear the market price.

This subsidy amount varies from month to month depending on the changes in the average international benchmark LPG and foreign exchange rates.
