    Title: Selling of my LPG cylinder to other party at higher rate.

    Question: I have my LPG gas connection from HP distributor. I received LPG gas cylinder at 420 Rs in subsidy rate or at 550 without subsidy. After taking it to my possession, can I sell it at higher rate to other party (other relative, friends, shop owner). Like I have paid 550 for bottle to my distributor and I can sell it to other party at 750 INR? If no then what to do for such past transaction?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 994/1034/L=09/1437)

    After you get the cylinder into your possession you will become its owner. Hence it is lawful for you to sell the cylinder in extra amount after taking it into your possession. The extra money shall be halal for you.

    Note: If it is forbidden as per the law to do so then you should avoid it.
