National Oil Marketing companies have increased commercial 19-kg LPG cylinder cost by Rs 250 effective Friday, April 1. It will now cost Rs 2253 in Delhi, news agency ANI reported. In the past two months, the price of a 19-kg LPG cylinder price hiked by Rs 346/cylinder. Earlier on March 1, the rate of a 19 kg commercial cylinder was increased by Rs 105 and then on March 22, its price was reduced by Rs 9. But there is a relief that this increase in prices has not happened in domestic LPG cylinders, but in commercial gas cylinders.

The same cylinder now costs Rs 2,351 in Kolkata, Rs 2,205 in Mumbai and Rs 2,406 in Chennai. The price of LPG cylinders is revised monthly for all states and union territories in India.

Restaurants, eateries, tea stalls and others constitute the largest user segment of the 19 kg cylinder.

After the assembly elections held in five states, the prices of petrol, diesel, and LPG are being increased continuously. On March 22, the subsidised domestic LPG cylinder increased by Rs 50. Earlier, after 6 October 2021, there was no change in the rate of domestic LPG cylinders.
