Reflecting a fall in international oil prices and the strengthening of the rupee against the US dollar, the price of domestic cooking gas or LPG cylinders have been reduced from this month. The price of a non-subsidised LPG cylinder of 14.2 kg has been reduced by about Rs 130 while that of a subsidised cylinder has been cut by about Rs 6.5.
After subsidy, the LPG cylinder costs Rs 500.9 in Delhi, Rs 504.12 in Kolkata, Rs 498.57 in Mumbai and Rs 488.85 in Chennai. Without subsidy, the LPG cylinder comes to you at a cost of Rs 809.50 in Delhi, Rs 837 in Kolkata, Rs 780.50 in Mumbai and Rs 826.50 in Chennai.
