Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot announced a scheme to provide LPG cylinders to poor in the state at the rate of Rs. 500 each under Ujjwala Scheme.
In a series of tweet, he said, “The state government is continuously taking public welfare decisions to provide maximum relief to the poor. In this direction, the state government is now coming up with a scheme to provide LPG cylinders to the poor at a cheaper rate.”
“With the implementation of the scheme, from April 1, 2023, at the rate of Rs. 500 per cylinder, BPL and poor people enrolled for the (central government’s) ‘Ujjwala’ Scheme will be able to get 12 cylinders in a year. This will reduce the financial burden on the common man in this era of inflation,” the tweet added.
“A roadmap is being prepared by the senior officials to implement the scheme in the state. Along with this, a plan will also be made by the state government to provide kits of kitchen items to the needy people,” the tweet further read.
