New Delhi, 06 October: Public sector oil marketing companies on Wednesday dealt another blow to the common man who was suffering from inflation. The price of domestic LPG has been increased by Rs 15 per cylinder.
Oil companies have once again increased the price of non-subsidized LPG cylinders. Earlier on October 1, the prices of 19 kg commercial gas cylinders were increased.
With this increase, the price of non-subsidised domestic gas cylinder in the country’s capital Delhi and financial capital Mumbai has increased from Rs 884.50 to Rs 899.50 per cylinder.
At the same time, for a domestic LPG cylinder in Patna, you will now have to pay only Rs 2 less for one thousand rupees, while in Kolkata, Rs 926 and in Chennai 14.2 kg LPG cylinder will be available for Rs 915.50.
It is noteworthy that in view of the rise in the price of crude oil, it was feared that this time the price of LPG cylinder will go beyond Rs 1000.
Earlier on September 1, the price of 14.2 kg non-subsidised domestic LPG cylinder was increased by Rs 25, while on August 18 the price of gas cylinder was increased by Rs 25.
