Union Minister said the Centre was contemplating to provide LPG to every household
and a pilot project would be launched in a district on experiment basis.
Later, the scheme would be launched in all districts gradually to ensure availability
of LPG to every household, he added.
Mr Pradhan said that Chief Minister Mr Kumar had assured all assistance in execution
of Centre sponsored scheme in Bihar.
Mr Kumar had also directed the Development Commissioner of Bihar to appoint a nodal
officer to coordinate implementation of Centre sponsored scheme in the state, he informed.
"The share of petroleum ministry in special package announced by Prime Minister
Narendra Modi for Bihar was Rs 21,000 Crores which has been increased to Rs 25,000
Crores," Union Minister said adding that Bihar was of special significance for the Centre
and all assistance would be made available to accelerate the pace of development of the
state.
Mr Pradhan while responding to a query on increase in prices of petrol and diesel, said
that Value Added Tax (VAT) on petroleum products varied from state to state. In some states
it was 15 to 20 percent, he said adding that Chief Ministers of such states had been
requested to reduce VAT on petroleum products to provide relief to the consumers.
It was expected that Chief Ministers would pay the heed to request of the Centre for
reducing VAT on petroleum products to provide relief to the common man, he noted.
