Out of the four metros, non-subsidised LPG remains most expensive in Kolkata, where a consumer pays Rs 620.50 for each refill. In Delhi and Mumbai each, the rate is at Rs 594 per cylinder, and Rs 610 per cylinder in Chennai.
Currently, the government subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2 kilograms each per household every year. The consumer has to make any additional purchases of LPG cylinders at the market price.
The amount of subsidy provided by the government on the annual quota of 12 refills varies from month to month. The subsidy is determined broadly by factors such as crude oil and foreign exchange rates.
