There has been a tremendous increase in the prices of Non- subsidized LPG cylinders on Monday, after which people in metro cities will now have to spend more money on cooking gas than ever before. In some metro cities, people will have to spend up to Rs 37 more per cylinder than before. This significant increase in LPG gas prices has come after three consecutive months of falling prices.
If we talk about metro cities LPG Gas Price, according to the data of Indian Oil Corporation, since Monday, that is, on June 1, i.e., in Delhi, the rate of cooking gas cylinders (14.2 kg) purchased on non-subsidy has increased by Rs 11.50. In contrast, in Kolkata Rs 31.50 per cylinder, Rs 11.50 per cylinder in Mumbai and Rs 37 per cylinder increased in Chennai.
A new rate of LPG Gas Price is set from today.
From June 1, Delhi will now have to spend Rs 593 on the refilling of non-subsidized cylinders currently available at a rate of Rs 581.50. In Mumbai, a cylinder of 579 rupees is 590.50 rupees, in Kolkata, which is being sold at the price of Rs 584.50, it will now be sold for 616 rupees. At the same time, in Chennai, a cylinder sold at the rate of Rs 569.50 will cost Rs 606.50.
Let me tell you that at present, the government gives 12 cylinders of 14.2 kg annually for a house at a subsidy. After this, if a consumer buys a separate cylinder, then he has to spend money according to the prices going on in the market.
It is also a matter to keep in mind that the subsidy of the government depends on the costs of crude oil in the international market, i.e., crude oil and foreign exchange.
