Indraprastha Gas Ltd has announced a hike in the price of CNG in New Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, Kanpur, Fatehpur, Hamirpur, Muzaffarnagar, Shamli, Karnal, Kaithal and Rewari.

Retail price of CNG in these markets will rise by 70 paise per kilogram, applicable from 6am on Tuesday.

In Kanpur, Hamirpur & Fatehpur, the revised CNG price is ₹60.50 per kg while CNG price in Muzaffarnagar & Shamli is now ₹57.25 per kg. For the state of Haryana, the revised CNG price in Rewari would be ₹54.10 per kg, while it will be ₹51.38 per kg in Karnal & Kaithal.

The price hike is “to partially offset the impact on account of increase in its operational, manpower and fixed costs during Covid-19 pandemic,” IGL said in a statement.

“Even after revision, the retail price of CNG in Delhi remains the lowest in the country,” the firm said. “This increase would have a marginal impact on the per km running cost of vehicles. For autos, the increase would translate to just over 2 paisa per km, for taxi it would be 4 paisa per km.“
