Following Delhi and Chandigarh, Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka, is going to become the third 'kerosene-free' city in India. The Karnataka government is providing cylinders of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to below poverty line (BPL) households, which use kerosene oil owing to insufficient LPG supply. Currently, some 15 per cent households in Bengaluru and nearly 35 per cent families in Karnataka rely on kerosene. The Karnataka government has reduced the kerosene quota to 90,000 kilolitres against a sanctioned quota of 5.09 lakh kilolitres. This will help the state government get additional funds worth 75 crore rupees from the centre.
