PM Modi’s Women’s Day Gift: LPG Cylinder Price Reduced by Rs 100, X – Govt Eases Public Burden with Significant Relief

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced a reduction of Rs 100 in the prices of cooking gas cylinders (14.2 kilograms). Following this decrease, the prices in Delhi have dropped from Rs 903 to Rs 803, in Bhopal to Rs 808.50, in Jaipur to Rs 806.50, and in Patna to Rs 901. 

This reduction comes as a relief to households, especially women, who often manage cooking responsibilities. The move reflects the government’s commitment to alleviating the financial burden on citizens, particularly during challenging economic times. By reducing LPG cylinder prices, the government aims to promote accessibility and affordability of essential commodities, contributing to the welfare of households across the country.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed on social media that while the lives of women will certainly become simpler, the economic burden of millions of families will also lessen. This move will not only contribute to environmental protection but also serve as a supportive measure to maintain the overall health of families.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has extended a significant gesture to the women of the country by reducing the prices of LPG cylinders.
