Through the Indira Gandhi Gas Cylinder Subsidy Scheme, the state government is providing cylinders up to Rs. 1140 for Rs. 500. It is fulfilling promises to relieve the common man from inflation.
Mr Gehlot addressed the beneficiaries of the Indira Gandhi Gas Cylinder Subsidy Scheme at the state-level beneficiary festival organized at Rajasthan International Center in Jaipur on Monday. He transferred benefits worth Rs 60 crore to the accounts of 14 lakh beneficiaries in one go at the press of a button.

He said that with the savings generated from these schemes of the state government, the beneficiary families could spend on improving the future of their children, their education and other maintenance.
Mr Gehlot said that dearness relief camps are being set up across the state, due to which the burden of dearness has been reduced on the common person.

The Central Government should enact a law to give eligible citizens the right to social security.
