| Updated: March 8, 2024 10:38

Announcing the Rs 100 cut, PM Modi said it would boost ‘Nari Shakti’

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced a Rs 100 price cut in LPG cylinders. Announcing the government’s decision on International Women’s Day, he said the step would especially benefit women.

“Today, on Women’s Day, our government has decided to reduce LPG cylinder prices by Rs. 100. This will significantly ease the financial burden on millions of households across the country, especially benefiting our Nari Shakti,” he wrote on X.

The Prime Minister said that the move would empower women. Making cooking gas more affordable would usher in a healthier environment. 

“By making cooking gas more affordable, we also aim to support the well-being of families and ensure a healthier environment. This is in line with our commitment to empowering women and ensuring ‘Ease of Living’ for them,” he added.

On Thursday, the Central government announced the extension of Rs 300 per LPG cylinder subsidy to poor women under the Ujjwala Yojana for the next fiscal year starting April 1.

In October 2023, the government hiked the subsidy from Rs 200 per 14.2-kg cylinders for up to 12 refills per year to Rs 300 per cylinder. 

Women’s Day greetings

In another post on X, PM Modi saluted the strength and courage of India’s Nari Shakti. 

“Greetings on International Women’s Day! We salute the strength, courage, and resilience of our Nari Shakti and laud their accomplishments across various fields. Our government is committed to empowering women through initiatives in education, entrepreneurship, agriculture, technology and more. This is also reflected in our accomplishments in the last decade,” he said.
