Commercial LPG prices: These changes in LPG prices have resulted in higher costs for commercial consumers, while domestic users can continue to enjoy the same prices.
On the occasion of Karva Chauth, the price of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) increased significantly, causing consumers to react negatively. Commercial users saw a significant increase of more than Rs 101.50 per 19-kilogram cylinder, causing concern among businesses, while domestic users saw some relief as the price for 14.2-kilogram cylinders remained unchanged.
LPG Cost After Increase
In Delhi, the price of a 19-kilogram LPG cylinder increased to Rs 1833 from Rs 1731.5 previously. Mumbai increased to Rs. 1785.50, Chennai to Rs. 1999.50, and Kolkata to Rs. 1943.00.
Commercial users will bear an additional burden as a result of this price increase; in just 32 days, Delhi will see an increase of about Rs 310. Within a month, there were significant hikes of Rs 307 in Kolkata and Rs 304.50 in Chennai. In the same time frame, Mumbai saw a total increase of Rs 303.50.
Positive news for domestic consumers:
Commercial consumers now face higher costs as a result of these LPG price changes, but residential consumers will receive much-needed relief as they can continue to purchase gas at the same cost as a few months ago.
Restaurant owner Rakesh Chaudhary in the nation’s capital responded to the price increase by saying, We are finding it harder to stay in business and barely turn a profit because the cylinder is getting more expensive every month. According to him, if we raise the price of the dishes, then the customers start to rush to other places that employ inferior food ingredients to maintain the same prices even after the increase in LPG prices.
