A huge amount of Govt. money is spent on subsidy of petroleum products. The Govt. had to spend Rs. 1,39,869 crore on account of subsidy on petroleum products in the year 2013-14. As, the indigenous availability of crude Oil and LPG is limited, these are imported in huge quantities to fulfill the demand of the country.  As Govt. provides domestic LPG and PDS Kerosene on subsidised price, this results in huge subsidy burden on Govt. Due to presence of dual pricing(subsidized and non-subsidized) in LPG and SKO, there is a diversion of subsidized LPG and Kerosene into commercial usage. Although Govt. has taken several initiatives to reduce this diversion of subsidized LPG and PDS Kerosene, public participation is solicited to suggest ways for reducing diversion in LPG and PDS Kerosene.

You are invited to suggest ideas to reduce diversion and the subsidy burden on account of LPG and Kerosene.

#PETROLEUMSECTOR #Kerosene #MyGov I TOO HAVE A BUSINESS RELATED TO PETROCHEMICAL PRODUCT I MANUFACTURE FUEL OIL WHICH WE PRODUCED FROM DECOMPOSING OF WASTE TYRES & PLASTIC PRODUCT( WHICH ARE NON DEGRADABLE ITEMS AND ALSO AVAILABLE IN HUGE QUANTITY IN THIS WORLD AT ALMOST FREE OF COST )BY PYROLYSIS PROCESS.THIS FUEL IS A VERY GOOD SUBSTITUTE OF KEROSENE AS WELL AS IT CAN SUBSTITUTE DIESEL TOO BUT LITTLE RESEARCH IS TOO BE NEEDED FOR ITS PURIFICATION AS IT CONTENT SOME CARBON PORTION.

Solar energy and bio gas production must be encouraged IN VILLAGES, which will result in keeping of COWS .This will promote good MILK quality and production which is decreasing day by day- (and is a great issue these days), and Biogas will give good manure for fertilisation purposes which will be used for agriculture .

Govt can slightly modify Ujjwala Yojana, benefit the 5 crore beneficiary poor families 4 times more at no extra cost. With Rs 9,000 crore annual budget, free LPG cylinders to 5 crore rural families will get them only 3 LPG cylinders/ family/ year @ Rs 600/ cyl, which is inadequate. But if rural poor families are given free readymade biogas systems got on rental of Rs 1,800/ year, it will cost the same, but get 12 LPG cyl equivalent biogas/ family/ year (adequate). This will also reduce GH gases.

Kerosene should be sold only through petroleum outlets. But it should be phased out gradually as it is in adulterating of diesel and petrol. Solar energy and bio gas production must be encouraged.

India's western and Northern part have direct sunlight for almost 8 months in a year. We will develop Solar Energy power plant to reduce dependency on Water and coal energy thermal power station. Also give awareness for Solar Energy equipment like Solar Cooker, Solar Hitter. We also use wind energy for Mountains and Terrains. Also we need to move on Non Conventional Energy sources to fulfill energy demand in India. We not depend on Fossil fuel sources too much as it badly effect on our economy

What I am proposing are long term solutions for I don't see an immediate stop gap arrangement.

LPG - use of Roof Top Solar Energy Generation solutions and promotion of energy efficient electrical stoves. Bio Gas plants in Rural India can be extremely effective given a ban on cow slaughter.

Oil - Electric Vehicles. Partnering with companies like Tesla, Google and promoting innovation in the automobile sector.

Unless India get rid of petroleum products,oils,gas,kerosene, it is a hurdle in becoming top nation. Use algae based plants to grow in sea to produce all type of petroleum products, Use solar,hydrogen to replace these products.Govt importing fuel at 30 rs and tax and oil company profits increasing it to 60 rs,it always a burden on people head.If hydrogen from sea water is obtained at 1 rs add tax and company profits we can give at 30 rs for people.Develop battery charging less than 5 min,for car

LPG consumption can be brought down considerably by introducing bio gas in each home. This would not only reduce LPG consumption but will process the bio waste @the source!! @my home, we, a family of me, wife, mom & two kids consume only about 4-6 cylinders per year. I had personally advocated in our Panchayat and got it done in about 20+ hones. Now, why it's not getting familiarized is because of the initial investment associated with establishing a unit.I hav a project for ruralbanks...

Why we're more dependent on LPG and kerosene .As combustion is quick and smoke free.If we're able to burn wood,coal,agricultural waste,briquetted fuel by using Electrical,Lpg for lighting up as primary fuel and change over to the above fuel with least smoke the system will be acceptable as cost effective compared to petroleum products.Design is not difficult as we have highly qualified engineers,research labs for a simple task which will be useful .A national saving can be achieved.

எரிவளி உருளைகளின் மீது எழுதப்பட்டிருப்பவை ஆங்கிலத்திலும் இந்தியிலுமே உள்ளன. அவை அந்தந்த மாநிலத்தின் மொழியிலும் எழுத்தப்பட வேண்டும். அப்போது தான் அது மக்களுக்கு பயனுள்ளதாக இருக்கும்.

As of now, on the LPG cylinders, something is written in english and hindi. Along with this the same content has to be written in language of the state. then only it will be useful to the people.
