Now, common man will have to pay Rs 883 for the seventh LPG cylinder, which is non-subsidised after the central government decided to limit the subsidized LPG cylinders to six in a year. Earlier, the price of non-subsidised LPG gas was Rs 756.
The decision to hike the LPG refill by Rs 127 was taken because the price of domestic liquefied petroleum gas has been linked to international gas prices.
Oil companies have said that the price of LPG cylinders will be revised every month.
Market experts believe that the price of LPG cylinders may go up further during the winter season on the back of higher demand for the product.
However, oil marketing companies have said that any decrease in the price of LPG in the international market would similarly be passed on to the consumers by way of reduction in the domestic prices of non-subsidized LPG cylinders.
