Kerosene allocation to TN on steady decline, CM writes to Centre

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami has sought for an increase in the kerosene allocation to the state availed through the public distribution system (PDS) in letters he has written to the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman and Petroleum, Natural Gas and Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan.
In 2011, the allotment of kerosene through PDS was 52,806 kilolitre (KL). After 19 reductions, it now stands at 10,764 KL. The allocation to the state this year has been reduced by close to 6,000 KL from last year.

“The monthly allocation of PDS kerosene till June 2019 was 16,148 KL which is much lesser than the restricted requirement of 23,035 KL. Now from July 2019 the monthly allocation has been communicated as 10,764 KL which is a further reduction of 33.34% of last month's allocation,” the CM wrote in his letter. This reduction would affect the 51,80,717 families who do not have any LPG connection and 74,92,535 families who have only a single LPG connection.
