India Govt. can easily stop LPG subsidy

If households can blindly pay Rs200 month-after-month-after-month for ‘living-room filth’ (= cable TV) , they can more easily pay for un-subsidised cooking gas.

Thereby:
Atleast a few would stop cable TV. National productivity will improve a tiny bit. Good.
Atleast a few would look towards more efficient cooking. Good.

This will put an end to black-marketing, hoarding, and the ensuing fund-flow to terrorists.

Yes, I have a strong opinion that whenever there is black-marketing in any commodity, gains from it will inevitably trickle down to global terrorism.

However, this subsidy-end should directly & immediately reflect in lower taxes, whatever minuscule fraction it be.

Off topic:
Macro-economically, every citizen should pay the same for the same quantum of stuff. Without that, the ones at the receiving end of govt subsidies would never get a chance to realise the true cost of stuff, be it rice or water or LPG or even the cost of bringing up kids.
