    Oil firms revise LPG price on 1st of every month based on average benchmark rate and foreign exchange rate in the previous month. 

    All LPG consumers have to buy the fuel at market price. The government, however, subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2-kg each per households in a year by providing the subsidy amount directly in bank accounts of users. 

    This subsidy amount varies from month to month depending on the changes in average international benchmark LPG rate and foreign exchange rate.
