The government gives 12 cooking gas (LPG) cylinders of 14.2-kg each to households in a year at a subsidised rate. This subsidy is directly paid into the bank accounts of the users.

The subsidy is paid in advance and consumers use this to buy LPG refills that are available only at market price from dealers of oil marketing companies — Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), BPCL and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL).

Last month, oil companies implemented a major change in the home delivery of LPG Cylinders. Consumers who book a LPG cylinder, now have to furnish a one-time password (OTP). Oil companies have implemented Delivery Authentication Code (DAC) for the customers opting for home delivery of LPG Cylinders
