Amidst the ever-increasing prices of gas cylinders used in the kitchen, now the customers have been given relief. Government oil and gas companies have given relief of Rs 135 in cylinder price. The new price of gas has come into effect from Wednesday, June 1. The price of 19 kg LPG cylinder has been reduced by Rs 135 per cylinder.
However, this benefit will be available only to the commercial consumers. Because, gas companies have changed the price of commercial cylinders only. The price of domestic gas cylinder has been kept as before. At present, domestic gas cylinder is costing Rs 1101 in Patna. This price is more than the capital of the country, Delhi.
