Cabinet halts decision to rectify gas slabs till June

The cabinet Committee on Energy has put a decision of correcting gas slabs on hold till Jun’ 19 in a bid to allow inefficient gas utilities to continue charging higher bills from the gas consumers. According to the new gas slabs scheme approved by the govt., gas companies have charged more than double bills at every new slab. The cabinet body has also noted that consumption of gas will drop in summers by the domestic consumers and, therefore, the slabs should be revised in Jun’ 19.
