This is the second increase in rate this month. On December 1, price was hiked by a similar Rs 50 per cylinder.

Prior to that, the price had remained unchanged at Rs 594 a cylinder since July. This was the same rate at which subsidised LPG refills are also sold.

A subsidised cooking gas cylinder was priced at Rs 497 in Delhi in June 2019. Since then, prices have cumulatively gone up by Rs 147.

However, the increase in rates this month would mean that the government will have to resume paying subsidies to consumers.
