LPG prices hiked by Rs 21 to Rs 431 per cylinder in Uttarakhand

New Delhi: The price of subsidised LPG has been hiked to Rs 431 from Rs 410 in Uttarakhand.

Last month government had raised the cap on supply of subsidised cooking gas (LPG) to nine cylinders per household from six and virtually deregulated diesel prices allowing “small” hikes over a period of time.

Subsidised LPG currently costs Rs 410.50 across the country per 14.2-kg cylinder and any household requirement beyond the new limit of 9 cylinders will cost a near market price of Rs 895.50 per bottle.
