In this New Year, oil companies have announced good news for consumers. The price of gas cylinders has been reduced uptoRs 4.5 paisa. These new charges have been implemented from 1st January, 2018. The government has approved the price of 14.2 kg on non-subsidized LPG cylinder of Rs 822.50 to be dropped to Rs 818.00.
In the same way, the price of 19 kg of commercial cylinder was Rs 1451, which has been reduced to Rs 1447. Thus, the rates of commercial cylinders have been reduced to Rs 4 and household cylinders have been reduced to Rs 4.50 paisa.
The plan to make the LPG connection free of cost to the poor is being considered against the decision of the government to increase the price of cooking gas cylinders every month. Due to this reason, people are protesting.
