Domestic LPG cylinder gets costlier by Rs 50 in Jaipur
Cost of domestic LPG cylinder in Rajasthan has reached Rs 1106.50, while the commercial cylinder rate has crossed Rs 2000
JAIPUR: The prices of domestic and commercial LPG have been increased by oil and gas companies.
The price of domestic gas cylinders has been increased by Rs 50, and commercial cylinders have been increased by Rs 350.
Consequently, the cost of domestic LPG cylinder in Rajasthan has reached Rs 1106.50, while the commercial cylinder rate has crossed Rs 2000 for the first time, now available at Rs 2138.
This decision by the companies has led to a new record in LPG prices.
Last year, the companies increased rates multiple times, and this decision will further increase the economic burden on the state government from next month.
The increase in gas prices will directly impact the pockets of more than one crore 75 lakh 48 thousand consumers in Rajasthan, and the rise in commercial gas prices will affect the prices of other items in the city as well.
Since the lockdown was imposed in April 2020, the central government has stopped the subsidy given on LPG, which was Rs 147 per cylinder until April 2020. Nowadays, a cylinder without subsidy is available for Rs 1003, up from Rs 583 in May 2020.
