When People are still fighting due to a continuous hike in petrol and diesel prices across the country, the central government hiked the non-subsidised Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) price by Rs 59 in New Delhi.

The Indian oil corporation said that the hike in non-subsidised LPG cooking gas is a result of a change in international price and foreign exchange fluctuations.

Subsidised LPG price has also been hiked by Rs 2.89 per cylinder to Rs 502.4 per cylinder.

In a press statement, IOCL said, “There is a marginal increase of Rs.2.89 per cylinder (from Rs.499.51 in September 2018 to Rs.502.40 in October 2018) in the effective price of Subsidised LPG cylinder in Delhi for domestic customers for the month of October 2018.”

“While the price of Non-Subsidised LPG at Delhi will increase by Rs.59.00 per cylinder in October 2018 mainly due to change in international price and foreign exchange fluctuations, the actual impact on subsidised domestic LPG customers is only Rs.2.89 per cylinder, which is mainly due to GST on the above,” it added.

Commenting on the hiked LPG cooking gas, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “After petrol and diesel price hike, now Modiji has increased the price of LPG cooking gas.”

“Since Modi government came in, so far the price of non-subsidised LPG has increased by Rs 400,” he added.
