The price of LPG (per 14.2 kilograms) has been increased by a cumulative Rs. 284 per cylinder in Delhi and Rs. 283 per cylinder in Mumbai so far since August – an increase of 49.43 per cent and 51.78 per cent respectively.
From February 1, the prices of 19-kilogram cylinders were revised upwards to Rs 1,466.00 per unit in Delhi and Rs 1,540.50 in Mumbai, from Rs 1,241.00 and Rs 1,190.00 respectively, according to data from Indian Oil.
Currently, the government subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2 kilograms each per household in a year. The consumer has to make any additional purchases at the market price.
The amount of subsidy provided by the government on the quota of 12 cylinders per year varies from month to month. Factors such as changes in the average international benchmark LPG prices and foreign exchange rates determine the amount of subsidy.
