The government is in the final phase of preparing a new and vibrant policy aimed at streamlining the matters related to the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) production, import, distribution and marketing.
“The new LPG policy is in the finalization process and it will help ensure availability of the commodity throughout a year across the country at controlled rates,” a senior official privy to petroleum sector developments told media.
He expressed confidence that the new policy would be beneficial for all stakeholders including consumers and marketing companies working in the LPG sector. According to an official document, around 769,589 tons of LPG is used by domestic, commercial and industrial consumers on the annual basis.—APP
