Domestic cooking gas LPG prices have been hiked by over Rs. 2 per cylinder after the government increased the commission paid to LPG dealers. A 14.2-kg subsidised LPG cylinder in Delhi will now cost Rs. 507.42 as against Rs. 505.34 previously, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers. This followed an order of the Oil Ministry that raised the dealer's commission. In that order, the ministry said the domestic LPG distributors' commission for 14.2-kg cylinder and 5-kg cylinder was last fixed at Rs. 48.89 and Rs. 24.20 respectively in September 2017.
