The Ministry of Finance is finally on the verge of substituting the use of LPG with electric stove popularly known as induction stove, at least inside Singha Durbar.

Finance Minister Sharma had mentioned that he would make an arrangement to replace gas cylinders with the electric oven by mid August this year at least in Singha Durbar. Subsequently he had mentioned that the plan is to be implemented in all public offices and residences inside Metro and Sub-Metro cities. The final goal is to make these cities cylinder free. 

Similarly, he had pledged to make the use of electric stoves nationwide gradually within forthcoming three months from the day of announcement.

Minister Sharma today initiated the usage of electric stove in the canteen of the MoF and urged all the ministries and other public offices to follow suit.

He instructed all the subordinate bodies to substitute LPG cylinders with the electric stove at the earliest, according to Minister's public relations advisor Manarishi Dhital.

A huge chunk of Nepal's foreign currency reserve was going out while importing the LPG gas cylinders for household and industrial use.

The incumbent government addressed the issue in policy level and adopted the policy to encourage usage of electricity and electric vehicles, and stoves as much as possible. To encourage usage of electric stove, the government has considered some concession in the tariff of electricity to those using electric stove.

Owing to various reasons, the Singha Durbar's canteens were not being able to substitute LPG gas cylinders with the electric stove since mid-July, interrupted supply of electricity being one.

Minister Sharma instructed to implement the provision in the budget to increase domestic consumption of electricity.
