New Delhi, Aug 27 (IBNS): Giving relief to households, the Centre on Wednesday lifted the monthly cap on subsidised LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cylinders.

The government, however,  retained the overall annual limit at 12 cylinders.

"The Government has now decided that while twelve subsidized LPG cylinders per annum will continue to be supplied to all domestic consumers, there will be no separate monthly restriction of one cylinder per month. This changes the earlier decision taken on 28.2.14 and removes the restriction imposed that ordinarily one cylinder be given to each beneficiary every month," read a government statement.

It said: " This decision of Government will alleviate difficulties faced by the genuine LPG consumers as the consumption of LPG cylinders is never exactly one per month. This change will meet their genuine requirements subject to their annual entitlement of subsidized cylinders."
