LPG Price: Even as the opposition cries foul over the effect of inflation on the prices of petrol, diesel and domestic LPG cylinders, Union Petroleum Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has asserted that the prices of LPG cylinders in India are the lowest globally.
Puri has tweeted that as a result of the ‘Citizen First’ policies of the PM Modi government, the increase in the price of LPG in India is much lower than the global level. LPG prices across the world have increased due to increase in input cost.
According to the data given in Puri’s tweet, at present in India, a 14.2 kg LPG cylinder in Delhi costs Rs 1053. A cylinder of this weight will cost Rs 1113.73 in Pakistan and Rs 1243.32 in Sri Lanka. At the same time, in Nepal, you will have to pay Rs 1139.93 for this much gas.
A 14.2 kg LPG cylinder will cost Rs 1764.67 in Australia, Rs 1754.67 in the US and Rs 2411.20 in Canada.
Cylinder became expensive only by Rs 130 during the tenure of Modi government
On July 1, 2014, a non-subsidised domestic cylinder in Delhi was priced at Rs 922.50.
