New Delhi: The government has reportedly scrapped its directive to state -owned oil companies to raise the price of subsidised cooking gas cylinders by Rs 4 every month, following which OMCs have not raised the price of subsidised LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) in January.
According to the website of Indian Oil, www.iocl.com, subsidised LPG costs Rs 495.69 in Delhi, Rs 498.43 in Kolkata, Rs 493.38 in Mumbai and Rs 483.69 in Chennai. Non-subsidised LPG prices are at Rs. 747 per cylinder in Delhi, Rs. 766 per cylinder in Kolkata, Rs. 719 per cylinder in Mumbai and Rs. 756 per cylinder in Chennai, according to IOC’s website.
