Energy Subsidies

The Council’s research on energy subsidies focuses on analysing the efficacy of subsidies in making clean cooking fuel affordable for Indian households, across the economic strata. Our work includes an evaluation of the performance of the  Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme for LPG (DBTL), a case to reform kerosene subsidies, and an evaluation of the LPG subsidy including recommendations to rationalise the subsidy mechanism to meet the energy needs of underserved populations.
