Listen to this article

LPG cylinder prices have been hiked by over 250 from April 1. The cost of a 19-kg gas cylinder price has climbed to 2,253 in Delhi on Friday. In the past two months, the price of a 19-kg LPG cylinder price hiked by 346/cylinder. Earlier on March 1, the rate of a 19 kg commercial cylinder was increased by 105 and then on March 22, its price was reduced by 9.

But there is a relief that this increase in prices has not happened in domestic LPG cylinders, but commercial gas cylinders.

After the assembly elections held in five states, the prices of petrol, diesel, and LPG are being increased continuously. On March 22, the subsidised domestic LPG cylinder increased by 50. Earlier, after 6 October 2021, there was no change in the rate of domestic LPG cylinders.

Today (April 1) i.e. even on the first day of the new financial year, domestic LPG cylinders are available for 949.50 in Delhi, 976 in Kolkata, 949.50 in Mumbai, and 965.50 in Chennai.

A 19 kg LPG cylinder was available in Delhi on 1 March for 2,012, which was reduced to 2,003 on 22 March. But from today it will cost 2,253 in Delhi. Whereas, in Kolkata, a consumer will have to shell out 2,351 for a 19-kg cylinder instead of 2,087, and in Mumbai, a person will have to spend 2,205 from 1,955 from today to purchase a 19-kg cooking gas cylinder. At the same time, instead of 2,138, a customer will have to spend 2,406 in Chennai from today.

Notably, fuel prices continue to rise with petrol and diesel rates rising by another 80 paise per litre each on Thursday, netting an increase of about 6.40 a litre in nine revisions in 10 days so far.

Yesterday, staging a protest against the fuel price hike, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi demanded the BJP-led Centre to bring the rising fuel prices under control.

Congress MPs led by Rahul Gandhi on Thursday staged a protest at Vijay Chowk on Thursday against the fuel price hike. Senior party leaders Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Mallikarjun Kharge, Abhishek Singhvi, KC Venugopal, Shakti Sinh Gohil and others were present at the protest.

The Congress leaders protested with cutouts of LPG cylinders and placards having the slogans 'Rollback fuel price hike'.

To take on the BJP-led central government on the issues of inflation and fuel price hike, Congress has decided to launch a nationwide programme 'Mehngai Mukt Bharat Abhiyan' against price rises under which it will organise rallies and marches across the country from March 31 to April 7.
