Hotels and restaurants have benefitted from the decision of the oil marketing companies to decrease the price of 19 kg LPG gas cylinders across the country.
“ This will help commercial consumers of LPG”, said Arun Singh, an owner of a hotel in Ranchi, echoing the sentiments of his counterparts in Jharkhand.
In Delhi, the price of LPG cylinders is for commercial purposes. At the same time, a reduction of around Rs 93 has been made in Kolkata, Mumbai, and Chennai.
This means that a 19 kg cylinder will be available in Delhi for Rs 1680. It was to date available for Rs 1780.
These prices have come into effect from 1 August 2023 i.e. from Tuesday. Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has updated the new rates on its website.
In Kolkata, the commercial cylinder will be available for Rs 1802.50 instead of Rs 1895.50. After this, instead of Rs 1733.50 in Mumbai, now a 19 kg gas cylinder will be available for Rs 1640.50. The cylinder available for Rs 1945 in Chennai has now become Rs 1852.50 (a reduction of Rs 92.50). Significantly, the price of gas cylinders has been reduced by Rs 93 in Kolkata and Mumbai.
