Simplyfy Rules for Transfer of Subsidy on LPG Cylinders

Hari Mitter Bhagi

Himachal is known for its green forests, flowing rivers and snow clad mountains. These are the things that attract tourists towards this hilly state. The subsidy on LPG cylinders too was provided with an aim to protect forests and environment of hill state. But the state and Union governments have made things difficult for common people of Himachal by linking it with Aadhar and bank account number. It is difficult for a poor person to shell out Rs. 1100 for a LPG cylinder in one entire go. It disturbs his monthly budget entirely. Some of them even don’t have this much of amount on time. Earlier people were dependent on wood and coal, but now people even in the remotest parts of Himachal are dependent on LPG cylinder for cooking. In such a condition it will be very difficult for a common Himachali to first shell out more than one thousand rupee for a LPG cylinder and then wait for subsidy to balance his monthly budget. The government will have to simplify the rules, as the public has to face problems due to complexity in rules. Prime Minister Narender Modi too forces on simplification of rules. If government has intentions of providing subsidy to public, then what is the use and aim behind making things complicated and difficult? The government instead should reduce VAT on LPG gas to provide relief to the consumers. Focus should be on improving distribution system, removing booking system and providing information to the consumers of day of availability of gas in the respective area. The quota of subsidized cylinders should also be fixed at a minimum of 12 cylinders. Union government is providing relief to masses by reducing the prices of petrol and diesel. The state government should also act in such a direction such that public feels relieved instead of burdened. The UPA government lost Lok Sabha elections only because the benefit of policies launched by the government did not reach  masses because of complexity in it. The government should initiate to make rules easier and save the public from vicious circle of retrieving subsidy on LPG cylinder through bank accounts linked with Aadhar cards.
