Cooking gas prices across the country were hiked by Rs 11.50 per 14.2 kg domestic cylinder on Monday. An IndianOil statement said the hike was on account of an increase in the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG or cooking gas) in the international markets.

"The Retail Selling Price of LPG in the Delhi market for May 2020 was reduced from Rs 744 to Rs 581.50 per cylinder for all consumers in line with a drop in international prices," the statement said.

However, this increase will not impact the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala (PMUY) beneficiaries, as they are covered by the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana, and are entitled to a free cylinder till June 30, the statement added.
