In Mumbai, a commercial LPG cylinder costs Rs 2,051 while in Kolkata, it will cost Rs 2,174.50. In Chennai, a 19 kg cylinder will be available for Rs 2,234.50. The rates for domestic cylinders were hiked by Rs 15 each on October 6, taking the total increase in rates since July to Rs 90 per 14.2-kg cylinder. Currently, the domestic cooking gas costs Rs 899.50 per cylinder in Delhi and Mumbai, and Rs 926 in Kolkata. This is the rate for domestic households that are entitled to 12 cylinders of 14.2-kg each at subsidised rates, poor households that received free connections under the Ujjwala scheme, and industrial users.
