    After reports that some of the families who are owning 2 and 3 cars and still taking the subsidy benefit, the government is likely to complete strike them off the lists eligible for availing the grant.

    To rule out the premise that the subsidy grant is not misused, the government has come up with a number of measures such as linking of gas connections aadhaar, DBTL or direct benefit transfer for LPG and GiveIt Up campaign.

    The measures helped the government find fake connections which amounted to as many as 75 million and enabled it on saving Rs. 30000 crore gas subsidy.

    The government has also targeted the BPL section through its Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY).

    The subsidy scheme is mainly targeted at low income groups and to keep it under limits needs to be checked as otherwise it can mean heavy losses for the exchequer. In a month's time the subsidy is reported to scale up from Rs. 100 to Rs. 200 and is the cash amount which is directly transferred to the bank account of the beneficiary.
