Cost of LPG cylinders has been raised, with a Rs 50 increase for domestic consumers and a Rs 350 increase for commercial consumers.
On Wednesday, the prices of both domestic and commercial Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders were increased. The cost of a 14.2 kg domestic cooking gas cylinder has been raised by Rs 50, while the price of a 19 kg commercial LPG cylinder has increased by Rs 350.50. These new rates are now in effect.
As a result of this latest price hike, the price of a domestic LPG cylinder in Delhi has now increased to Rs 1,103, while the 19 kg commercial cylinder will cost Rs 2,119.50 in the capital.
The increased cost of LPG cylinders will add to the burden of the common man, who is already facing higher prices for other daily necessities.
In India, state-run oil companies revise the cost of LPG on a monthly basis. LPG is widely used for cooking purposes in Indian households, and the prices of domestic cooking gas can vary from state to state based on local taxes.
