Give UP LPG Subsidy is a campaign started in March 2015 by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, with an intention to motivate the LPG users in India who can afford to pay for the LPG cylinders at market price to voluntarily surrender the LPG subsidy.
The central government in India is providing LPG cylinders at subsidized rates to all the domestic households in India.
This is done to help the needy people with an objective to help them to make the LPG cylinders affordable and it is not a burden on them in financial terms.
Post the launch of Give Up LPG Subsidy moment, most of the affordable family households in India have given up the subsidy amount which otherwise was directly credited to their respective bank accounts.
