The price of non-subsidised cooking gas or LPG was hiked by Rs 86 per cylinder. This is an outcome of firming international rates, the oil companies have said. The 14.2 kg cooking gas cylinder that consumers buy beyond their 12 cylinder at a subsidised rate will now cost Rs 737 in Delhi. This was announced by the state owned fuel retailers.
The cost of the 19 kg commercial cylinder is now costlier by Rs 149.50 while the 5 kg non-subsidy cylinder will be dearer by Rs 30.50.
Now 14 kg cylinder will cost Rs 737 instead of Rs 691 while the 19 kg cylinder will be Rs 1,479.50 instead of Rs 1,330. The five kg cylinder will now cost Rs 282 instead of Rs 252.
However, it is worth noting here that subsidy amount that gets transferred to account will now be Rs 340.57 instead of Rs 254.20.
