LPG Cylinder rate is revised monthly for all the states and union territories in India.
However, there is no increase in rates of domestic LPG cylinders.
The increase in the prices surprisingly comes after the national oil marketing companies had slashed the prices of 19 kg commercial LPG cylinder cost by Rs 91.50 on February 1.
Meanwhile, the price hike will result in stress for restaurants, eateries and tea stalls, etc which constitute the largest user segment of the 19 kg cylinder.
