IMPHAL March 27: Cooking gas has become costlier thanks to the government policy to regulate the distribute in sugar coated policy of making the same available cheaper to the low income group. In Manipur these LPG cylinders were mostly available on the black market in view of the general strikes, blockades and other forms of disruptions which had become an order of the day. In those days one LPG cylinder was available at Rs 800 or so.

However it has been increased to Rs 1300 at the cheapest once the new system was introduced. The cooking gas agents have made things very complicated with disinformation given to the consumers who seek some legitimate information to furnish the necessary forms. There were also allegations that some of the agents had extorted money while issuing the forms.

In view of the avoidable delays the consumers are uble to obtain theirLPG cylinders in time. In means that they have to depend on the shops and other persons who sell the same on the blackmarket. Though it is a known fact that the cylinders are sold at this prohibitive price, nothing has been done by the administration and the helpless consumers have to fork out the big amount.
