Our Gyenkhu: citizen's initiative of voluntarily switching from subsidized to non-subsidized LPG was launched on April 11, 2019. This is a noble initiative to inspire our leaders, households and individuals to voluntarily surrender the subsidized LPG and switch to non-subsidized LPG. The surrendered subsidized cylinders will be distributed to the rural and underprivileged households.

  • Non subsidized LPG cylinders and refill services are available from all three existing LPG dealers
  • LPG card/POL mCoupon is not required to avail non subsidized LPG
