Petroleum companies have increased the prices of new domestic gas connections. For a new connection, a cylinder weighing 14.2 kg will now cost Rs 22 hundred. The new price will have to be paid from June 16. Now Rs 1450 has to be paid. If someone takes a connection of two cylinders, then he will have to pay 44 hundred rupees only for the security of the cylinder.
Earlier, Rs 2900 had to be paid. Now instead of Rs 150, Rs 250 will have to be spent on the regulator. In a release issued by Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum, it has been told that the security amount of 5 kg cylinder has now been increased to Rs 1150 instead of Rs 8 hundred.
The customers of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana have also been shocked by the new rates. If these customers double the cylinder on their connection, then the increased security amount for the second cylinder will have to be paid. However, if someone gets a new connection under the Ujjwala scheme, then the amount of security of the cylinder will have to be paid as before.
Petroleum companies are offering non-subsidized LPG cylinders weighing 14.2 kg for Rs 1065. The security amount has gone up to Rs.22 hundred. Along with this, 250 for regulator, 25 for passbook and 150 for pipe will have to be paid.
