Fair price shops to sell 5-kg LPG cylinders

Shimla, December 6

Small LGP cylinders weighing 5 kg will soon be available at fair price shops in the state. The fair price shop owners have given consent, albeit with some riders, to sell LPG cylinders. "The decision has been taken to increase the financial condition of the fair price shop owners and the convenience of consumers," says KC Chaman, Director, Food and Civil Supplies.

The arrangement is voluntary and the shop/depot owners will be free to choose whether they want to sell LPG cylinders or not. "Also, the Department of Food and Civil Supplies will have no role in this arrangement. The understanding and arrangement will be entirely between the shop/depot owners and the oil companies and the distributors," says Chaman.

Also, the interested shop/depot owners will need to fulfil the terms and conditions as mandated by oil marketing companies for the storage of flammable substances. — TNS
