In accordance with the Budget introduced this year, the govt. has decided to withdraw the voluntary Give it up campaign for subsidy and has started working on withdrawal of LPG subsidy benefit given to people whose annual income is more than Rs 10 lakh per year.
1. The decision will enable the targeting of LPG subsidy to those who deserve it the most.
2. It is easier to target LPG subsidy because it is given directly into the account of beneficiaries. The account is linked with Aadhar number and same Aadhar number is also mentioned in income tax return.
