The oil ministry Friday approved the sharing of increased security deposit for new cooking gas (LPG) connections on 50:50 basis between the Delhi government and state-run oil companies.

A ministry statement said the approval comes under the Kerosene Free Delhi Scheme to Below Poverty Line (BPL) and Antyodaya families and would help re-start the process of releasing new connections to such families under the scheme.

The security deposit for (LPG) connections was recently increased from Rs.1,400 to Rs.1,600.
