NON-SUBSIDIZED LPG CYLINDERS HIT THE MAR­KET

Business Bhutan - - Nation -

To curb the short­age of Liq­uid Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders in the coun­try, the Depart­ment of Trade launched non-subsidized LPG in the cap­i­tal last week.

More than 70,000 non-subsidized LPG cylinders, which is about 1,000MT were made avail­able to four Thromdes.

Un­like the subsidized LPG which re­quires Nu 1,450 to be paid as se­cu­rity de­posit, non­sub­si­dized LPG costs Nu 1,650. Whereas a cost to re­fill a subsidized LPG is Nu 537, non-subsidized LPG costs Nu 815. How­ever, non-subsidized LPG does not re­quire the LPG card or a coupon num­ber.

Bhutan re­ceives about 49,300 subsidized LPG cylinders amount­ing to about 700MT monthly.
