On LPG cylinders rates have again been brought down, while the rate fall is only negligible in case of subsidized cylinders, for the non-subsidised, you will now have to shell out lower by 0.5% as per the data from Indian Oil Corporation data which sells cooking gas cylinders under the Indane brand.
In case of subsidized cylinders, you will now have to pay Rs. 491.21 in Delhi, Rs. 494.23 in Kolkata, Rs. 488.94 in Mumbai and Rs. 479.42 in Chennai for a LPG gas cylinder lower by 14 paise, 10 paise, 10 paise and 2 paise per cylinder respectively in each of these cities.
However, for the non-subsidised, the LPG rates have come down by Rs. 3 per cylinder in Delhi, Rs. 2 per cylinder in Kolkata and Mumbai each, and 50 paise per cylinder in Chennai. So, you now need to pay Rs. 650.5 per cylinder, Rs. 674 per cylinder, Rs. 623 per cylinder and Rs. 663 per cylinder respectively in each of these cities.
With this revision, this is the fifth reduction in LPG price so far this year. On a gross basis, LPG rates have been cut by Rs. 4.2-4.48 per cylinder across metros while for non-subsidized cut has been substantial by Rs. 92-96.5 per cylinder.
So the price of subsidized LPG and non-subsidised LPG cylinders across metros has declined as below:
|Subsidised LPG price per cylinder of 14.2 Kg (in Rs.)|
|May 1||April 1||December 1|
|Non-subsidised LPG price (in Rs.)|
Fuel rates meanwhile have remain the same for eight day in a row mainly due to election season.
