India becomes world's 2nd largest LPG importer after China
NEW DELHI: India has become the world's second largest importer of liquefied petroleum gas as the government pushes cleaner alternatives to traditional cooking fuels such as firewood and cow dung.
Oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan says imports of LPG grew 12.5 percent over the past five years to 12 million metric tons (13 million tons) in 2018-19, surpassing Japan and putting India in second place behind China.
He says demand for LPG is projected to rise 34 percent from 2014 to 202
Traditional fuels such as wood and cow dung cause heavy pollution and health problems for millions of villagers.
India imports LPG mainly from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iran.

Nothing to boast about... we should be worried because population is increasing..In fact, LPG is a non-renewable energy and on the other hand, requirement is increasing. Let's pledge to curb population..

This is not a encouraging news for the nation, by virtue of importing LPG lots of foreign exchange is being wasted, as a result rupee will never be a strong.

Import of LPG is necessary for us so we should import it .But to finance the import we must produce and export various goods at the competitive rates .

This kind of development can only happen through a nationalist party BJP. None can match and question its great intentions to unite one India. They foresightedness and hardworking nature will benefit India a lot in coming years.

Instead if importing LPG why the government is not promoting the use of methane gas from cow dung for cooking.
