No kerosene oil is issued to the L.P.G users (Both S.B.C. or D.B.C). The distribution of kerosene oil depends on the availability of kerosene and ration cards in each area.

Hospitals, Schools, Colleges, CRPF, BSF/Police units and religious institutions are allowed kerosene at PDS rates out of the monthly quota of the State. No separate kerosene quota is issued by Government of India for these institutions.

Since kerosene is a highly subsidized commodity, the Department has taken various steps to check its diversion from the Public Distribution System for black marketing and adulteration with diesel and petrol. Monthly checking norms of wholesalers and retailers have been fixed and regular reports are obtained from District officers every month.
