New Delhi: At a time when soaring prices of petrol, diesel, CNG and PNG has sent household budget into a spin, oil companies provided relief to some extent by cutting prices of non-subsidised LPG cylinders by Rs 35.50.
The price cut is the second in less than a month after a reduction in international pricing early March had led to a similar fall. The latest cut by oil companies, however, extends to commercial cylinders. A 19-kilo commercial cylinder will now cost Rs 54 less while a small 5-kilo cylinder has also received a cut of Rs 15.
Subsidised LPG quota
Every household in the country is entitled to have 12 LPG cylinders of 14.2 kg each at subsidised rates in a year. Any requirement beyond that is to be purchased at market price (non-subsidised LPG rates).
