Subsidy should be applicable for all fuels that are used for cooking: Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar

Niti Aayog is working on a proposal to replace LPG subsidy with cooking subsidy in order to extend the benefits to people using piped natural gas and biofuels for cooking purposes.  Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar said subsidy should be applicable for all fuels that are used for cooking.  At present, the government extends subsidy to users of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).
Mr.Kumar told PTI that the changes pertaining to cooking subsidy are likely to be incorporated in the draft National Energy Policy 2030. The draft was made public last year. He said, after inter-ministerial consultations, the policy would be taken up by the Cabinet.
