There is no check on the illegal business of LPG in the Thal as illegal Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) decanting has been going unchecked and a large number of gas shops are not following safety measures. Several LPG decanting outlets are operating in the town, in the absence of standard safety measures, putting the lives of citizens at risk. A number of such gas shops operate in congested areas. The LPG decanting from one cylinder to another using electric motors is prohibited but the practice is continued due to the absence of strict monitoring by the authorities concerned.

 The inhabitants of the city appealed the high-ups concerned to rein in the illegal sellers of the LPG.
