More than 100 employees of Oil Marketing companies voluntarily give up LPG subsidy

New Delhi,India is taking great strides in development and the Oil Marketing Companies and their employees have been crucial partners in this growth story. The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas and its Oil Marketing companies have introduced a slew of initiatives keeping the consumer welfare in mind.

With the growing LPG subsidy burden, more than 100 employees of the three OMCs have now voluntarily given up LPG subsidy and have once again demonstrated their commitment to nation building by this act and have joined the cause of providing affordable eco-friendly fuel LPG to every household in the country. This will help in expanding LPG coverage in rural areas and will be a gift of good health to women and children who are exposed to high indoor pollution by use of dirty fuels. It demonstrates care and concern for the less privileged brethren and will go a long way to others to join the movement of nation building by giving up subsidy.

The Minister of State (I/C) for Petroleum and Natural gas, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan has personally congratulated all these employees by sending a personal letter and has exhorted all the citizens who can afford market priced LPG to join this movement. The LPG subsidy can be given up by visiting the distributor and giving a written request to this effect. Very shortly this facility will be made available via the web also. Let us all join hands in nation building.
