This is the second hike in 15 days. The previous hike was of ₹25 on August 18.

Further, the price of a 19 kg commercial cylinder has also been increased by ₹75, taking the price in Delhi to ₹1,693 per cylinder.

The incessant rise in cooking gas prices has drawn criticism for the government from several quarters.

After the previous hike in LPG prices, the Congress slammed the government saying since November last year it has hiked the price of the cooking gas by ₹265 per cylinder and it has not given any subsidy on the cooking gas since May 2020.
