In Delhi-NCR, CNG price has gone up by Tk 2 per kg; See details
The price of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) in Delhi and adjoining cities has been increased by Rs 2 per kg with effect from 6 am on May 15.
With this increase, the price of CNG is now Rs 73.61 per kg in the national capital. The price in Noida is Rs 76.17 per kg. While in Gurugram, CNG is being retailed at Rs 81.94 per kg after the latest increase.
Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), a firm that retails CNG and piped cooking gas in the national capital and surrounding cities, has also increased gas prices in other parts of the country.
In Rewari, CNG is being retailed at Rs 84.07 per kg. CNG is being retailed at Rs 82.27 per kg at Cornell and Kaithal. In Kanpur, Hamirpur and Fatehpur it is Rs 85.40. While in Ajmer, Pali and Rajsamand CNG are retailing at Rs 83.88 after the latest hike.
City gas distributors have been raising prices since October last year as domestic and international gas prices began to rise as the world economy recovered from the epidemic-induced recession.
Prices have risen £ 8.74 per kg in the last three months of 2021, and have risen steadily by about 50 paise per kg almost every week since January.
The rate has risen since the government doubled the price of natural gas from 1 April to USD 6.1 per million British thermal units.
Auto, taxi and minibus drivers’ organizations went on strike in the national capital last month over the “unprecedented” increase in CNG rates.
