CNG price to go up by Rs 2/ kg
New Delhi: Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL) has evised prices of compressed natural gas (CNG) used in vehicles by about Rs 2/kg. Also, the price of piped natural gas (PNG) provided to households is up by around Re 1 per standard cubic metre (scm).
This would lead to an increase of Rs 2 per kg for CNG buyers in Delhi and Rs 2.25 per kg in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad. Now, CNG would cost Rs 41.90 per kg in Delhi and Rs 47.35 per kg in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad.
At the same time, the PNG to the households in Delhi is revised from Rs 23.50 per scm to Rs 24.50 per scm up to consumption of 30 scm in two months with effect from June 25. For consumption of more than 30 scm in two months, the rate in Delhi would be Rs 40.50 per scm.
In Uttar Pradesh, domestic PNG would be Rs 26 per scm up to consumption of 30 scm in two months, which has been increased from existing Rs 25 per scm. Beyond consumption of 30 scm in two months, the rate applicable in these cities would be Rs 43 per scm. IGL has blamed the depreciating rupee against the dollar as the reason for increase in prices.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
