Depending on the scheme, when you take LPG connection, the total amount with gas stove is Rs. 3200. In which Rs. 1600 is given by the government as a subsidy. The remaining Rs 1,600 is provided by the oil company. But customers have to pay the remaining amount of Rs 1600 to the companies in the form of EMI.
Pradhan said that measures such as cash transfer, insurance cover, ensuring food security and the decision to provide free LPG cylinders for 3 months to all the beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana will give relief to millions of poor and ensure that no one in the country goes hungry.
“We are in this together, we will fight this invisible enemy and emerge victorious. Our Government is taking all necessary measures to minimise any negative impact on our economy and society,” he said.
The structure of EMI is such that customers do not have to pay separately. When you refill LPG, the amount that should be credited to your account in the form of DBT is paid directly to the account of the companies. This amount is given till it reaches Rs.1600. Once you pay this, you start getting the subsidy again.
No EMI on the first 6 cylinders of 14 kg
This was causing financial hardship to the affected consumers, which led the Petroleum Ministry to order the oil companies to start EMI deferral scheme. It will not require customers to pay EMI on 6 cylinders in a 14 kg cylinder in a year. EMI has to be given on the seventh cylinder.
