The government increased the cooking gas LPG price by Rs.2 per cylinder. The increase in the price resulted due to hike in the commission paid to LPG dealers by the Oil Ministry.
For the second time the price of the subsidized cooking gas is increased this month. The earlier one was increased by Rs.2.94 per cylinder on November 1.
As per the notification on the prices hike, the ministry has raised LPG distributors commission to Rs.50.58 from Rs.48.89 per 14.2 kg cylinder, while the commission on 5 kg cylinder is increased to Rs.25.29 from Rs. 24.20.
The price however could differ from state to state depending on the taxes and transportation cost.
