Cooking gas rates are increased around the beginning of every month.
In the last 6 months, the prices of domestic gas have gone up by Rs 140/-
Domestic gas prices have taken a leap once again and this time by Rs. 25.50. The rise in price is with effect from 1st July. Not to mention that the pockets had almost disappeared as the holes increased regularly leaving no scope for pockets.
LPG prices are normally raised every month and with this hike the prices have gone up by 140 rupees in the past 6 months. The price of 19 kg gas cylinder has also shot up by 76 rupees taking it to 1550 rupees.
Consumers pay the market price and the government is supposed to pay subsidy to domestic consumers. This subsidy was taken off in metros and major cities some time back.
If the prices of petrol/diesel and cooking gas keep taking upward leaps, the masses will face too much of financial crunch as the pandemic has already wreaked havoc in the past one year and it seems that this is not going to end soon.
