LPG cylinder prices hiked across India, here are the new rates for different regions

Prior to this raise, prices had been cut for three months on run up to May. It is worth noting here that cylinder prices are revised at the start of every month depending on the global LPG benchmark rate and the rupee-dollar exchange rate.

The first day of Unlock 1.0 saw a hike in cooking gas cylinder prices across the country.

Following a global hike in June prices, the rates of LPG cylinders in India have been hiked with effect from today. For Delhi consumers, the prices are now up by Rs 11.50 a cylinder, according to a release by the IOC.

After the latest adjustment, a (non-subsidised 14.2 kg Indane) cylinder will now cost Rs 593 in Delhi, Rs 590.50 in Mumbai, Rs 606.50 in Chennai and Rs 616 in Kolkata.


The different types of Indane cylinders include: (a) compact 5 kg cylinders for rural, hilly and inaccessible areas, (b) 14.2 kg cylinders for domestic use and (c) 19 kg and 47.5 kg for commercial and industrial use.

Prior to this raise, prices had been cut for three months on run owing to benign global prices.

According to the Indian Oil website, this hike won't affect Ujjwala Yojana beneficiaries because they are "covered under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana and are entitled to a free cylinder till June 30th."
