The price of a 19-kg commercial LPG cylinder in Delhi dropped from ₹2012.50 to ₹1,976, with a reduction of ₹36.

Amid opposition protests in Parliament, the price of a commercial LPG cylinder was on Monday reduced by 36, in line with a weakening on international rates. The price change will benefit hotels, restaurants and other business establishments that use gas cylinders. However, there has been no change in the price of domestic LPG cylinders used in households.
