Chandra Prakash, general secretary of the All India LPG Distributors Federation, argues that distributors hardly have any funds to carry out such activities. There are caps on how much LPG can be sold by various types of distributors but the highest is 16,500 per month. Given the distribution margin of Rs 44 per cylinder, that’s an income of R7.3 lakh per month. For an average distributor selling, say 6-8,000 cylinders a month, once costs are accounted for, profits don’t add up to more than R1 lakh a month.
