The sufferings of general people in getting the refill supply of domestic LPG cylinder in brief is that the they are required to go through an ordeal of 60-90 days period, in which first they have to present themselves in the office of Gas-Agency for booking and then 15 days later for lodging complaints for non-delivery repeatedly once in a week till the same is delivered at his door-step or looted by the vendor or procured by him from the storage point. The reasons thereof may be attributed to some factors mentioned as follows: Domestic refill supply(14.2 kg), which is a subsidized commodity and is meant for use by only bonafide consumers under Public Distribution System is being sold in the black-market at a little higher price by the Distributor to the hoteliers/dhaba-owners and to the illegal traders enganed in the business of selling spurious cylinders/gas equipments (without any authorization from Gas Company/Chief Controller of Explosives/Parallel Marketeer), who in turn either sell the same to registered consumers or transfer the gas to these spurious cylinders and then sell to the non-registered consumers.
