The price of Cng has increased in Delhi by Rs 2.5/Kg;  Total increase of Rs 9.1/Kg in April only

Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) on Thursday raised the price of compressed natural gas (CNG) by Rs 2.5/kg. This is the third price increase in April, bringing the total increase to Rs 9.1/kg this month alone.

CNG in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi now costs Rs 69.11 per kg, according to information posted on the website of IGL – the company that retails CNG and piped cooking gas in the nation’s capital and nearby towns.

The increases come as the government more than doubled natural gas prices to $6.1 per million British thermal units from April 1.

Natural gas when compressed becomes CNG for use as fuel in automobiles. The same gas is also piped to household kitchens and industries for cooking and other purposes. The CNG price increase follows a Rs 10 per liter rise in petrol and diesel prices in 17 days and a Rs 50 per bottle rise in LPG cooking gas tariffs.

A record 137-day hiatus in gasoline and diesel price reviews ended on March 22. On the same day, the price of a 14.2 kg LPG cylinder was raised to Rs 949.50 in Delhi. In some places, the price of LPG has touched Rs 1,000.
