Central Government have announced the decision to increase the number of subsidized cylinders from 9 to 12 to each family. It is a welcome decision, no doubt. But one wonders why this decision was not taken earlier. It is the same ministry which has reduced the number to 9 (earlier still less, 6).The same ministry allowed the linking of 'Aadhar' card to the subsidy payment. Now they are stepping back.
Hence one may get the doubt that this latest decision is just an Election stunt. If the same party comes to power there is every chance that they will undo this increasing of number of cylinders.
