Govt has asked OMCs to increase LPG prices by Rs 4 every month till entire subsidy is removed. Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Monday ordered state-run oil companies to increase LPG prices by Rs 4 every month till the entire subsidy is removed.
Last year in July, the Centre had ordered to increase the prices by Rs. 2 every month but the hike has now been doubled. The increase in LPG prices has raised burden on common people amid the ongoing inflation. If the skyrocketed tomato prices were not enough of a shock, the government has now tightened the noose around cooking gas as well.
