The government subsidizes 12 cylinders of 14.2 kg for each gas connection in a year.
- Domestic gas cylinder prices increased by Rs 50, increase by Rs 175 since November
In the midst of the Corona epidemic, the continuous increase in the prices of domestic gas cylinders is deteriorating the budget of the people. This has led to increasing resentment of women towards the central government. Housewives say that gas cylinders were once subsidized by Rs 335. But now it is just 35.17 rupees and if the prices increase in the same way, then they will go on going 35. After a price increase of Rs 50, customers are now paying Rs 807 in exchange for a cylinder. Cylinder prices have increased by Rs 175 since November 2020.
Actually, petroleum companies have increased the price of LPG cylinder by Rs 50 directly. It has been implemented from 12 pm on Sunday night. Now in Uttar Pradesh, the price of 14.2 kg domestic gas cylinder has been increased to Rs 807. Gas cylinder prices have been raised for the second time in February. Earlier, on February 4, the non-subsidized cylinder became expensive by Rs 25, that is, the price of domestic gas has been increased by Rs 75 in February itself.
