In Press: Arunabha Ghosh and Abhishek Jain's Column on 'A Rs 12,000-crore year-end gift' in Business Standard
26 Dec 2014

In this latest column, CEEW's CEO Dr Arunabha Ghosh and Junior Research Associate Abhishek Jain discuss how India could gift itself $2 billion by rationalising LPG subsidies. The column begins by posing the question of how India could increase access to modern cooking energy for millions of under-served citizens while maintaining fiscal discipline? Further challenges such as limited LPG access, lopsided distribution and misdirected subsidies are highlighted in the column.

The column concludes by noting that a more rational LPG subsidy program would lead to increasing access to cleaner cooking fuels for poorer households, positive impacts on indoor air quality and the health of women, and cut fiscal deficit.
