The Centre is mulling strategies to frame new rules against the rich community on LPG subsidy . Union finance minister Arun Jaitley, while participating in Hindustan Times leadership meet in Delhi, has given indication that LPG subsidy may not be applicable to rich people as the Centre is focusing on reducing the subsidy burden on LPG. The government is likely to give directions on this soon. Jaitley said that only the poor and middle class people will have the options of availing 12 cylinders per year on subsidy ground.
