Increased price of LPG LPG cylinder
If you calculate the last 15 days, then a lot has become expensive. All these things are related to common people. All these things are directly related to everyday life. This includes from edible oil to petrol and diesel. Apart from this, there is also the name of LPG and CNG-PNG. It is being said that the way the coal crisis is visible, the electricity rate can also become expensive. Let us know that the prices of some things have increased recently.
First of all talk about LPG cylinder. LPG price was hiked by Rs 15 per cylinder on Wednesday in view of the rise in international fuel prices, while petrol and diesel prices also hit record highs. The prices of subsidized and non-subsidised LPG were increased. With this, a total of Rs 90 has been increased in the price of 14.2 kg cylinder since July. According to government oil companies, now the price of LPG in Delhi and Mumbai has gone up to Rs 899.50 per cylinder. Whereas in Kolkata it is Rs 926.
LPG cylinder price hike
The government has abolished the subsidy on LPG in most cities by increasing it from time to time. The common household, which is entitled to 12 cylinders of 14.2 kg each at subsidized rates in a year, and the Ujjwala scheme beneficiaries who get free connections, now pay the market price. The price of 5 kg LPG cylinder has now gone up to Rs 502. This is the fourth increase in LPG prices since July. In July, the prices were increased by Rs 25.50 per cylinder. After this, an increase of Rs 25 was made on 17 August and 1 September.
CNG-PNG price hike
After a 62 percent increase in the price of natural gas, CNG on Friday became costlier by Rs 2.28 per kg in Delhi and by Rs 2.10 per kg for piped cooking gas to households. Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) said in a statement, “IGL has revised the selling prices of CNG following the notification issued regarding increase in the prices of natural gas by 62 per cent. This decision has been taken to marginally mitigate the impact of increase in production gas cost. After this decision of IGL, CNG has become costlier by Rs 2.28 per kg for consumers in Delhi and Rs 2.55 per kg in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad.
IGL has also decided to increase the prices of domestic PNG (LPG delivered to households through pipes) from October 2. The consumer price of PNG in Delhi has been increased by Rs 2.10 per cubic meter to Rs 33.01 per SCM. In the same Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad, it will cost Rs 32.86 per SCM. IGL said the decision to hike the prices of CNG and domestic PNG has been taken to marginally mitigate the impact of the increase in the price of natural gas and increasing dependence on costly R-LNG.
Petrol-Diesel made a record
Petrol and diesel prices reached an all-time high on Tuesday. Fuel prices have risen again with international oil prices rising to their highest level since 2014. Two days ago, the price of petrol has been increased by 25 paise per liter and diesel by 30 paise. Due to this, the price of petrol reached a record level of Rs 102.64 per liter in Delhi and Rs 108.67 in Mumbai. Diesel price also touched a record high of Rs 91.07 in Delhi and Rs 98.80 in Mumbai. Prices vary from state to state based on local taxes.
With the sixth increase in petrol prices within a week, the price of this fuel has crossed Rs 100 in most major cities of the country. Similarly, with the ninth increase in prices in less than two weeks, the price of diesel has gone above Rs 100 in many cities of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Toll fee also increased
Toll rate has been increased for commercial vehicles on Yamuna Expressway. The new rates have come into force with immediate effect. For commercial vehicles, there has been an increase from 5 paise to 15 paise per kilometer. Accordingly, now one and a half rupees more will have to be paid for 10 kilometers. The toll rate for light commercial vehicles, light goods carriers and minibuses has been increased from Rs 3.85 to Rs 3.90 per kilometer. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Yamuna Authority Dr. Arunveer Singh said that the rate for buses and trucks has been increased from Rs 7.85 to Rs 7.90 per kilometer. The rate for heavy construction machines has been increased from Rs 11.90 to Rs 12.05 per kilometer. On the other hand, big vehicles will have to pay a toll of Rs 15.55 per kilometer instead of Rs 15.40.
cooking oil fire
In lieu of reduction in the price of edible oil, it continues to rise. The price of mustard oil has reached more than Rs 200 per liter. No oil is more than this rate. Despite taking government steps, the prices of oil are not coming down. Mustard experts say that the stock of mustard is estimated to be barely 18-20 lakh tonnes left. There is no option for this. In view of these facts, the government should take a decision regarding this.
There is still about five months to come for the next crop of mustard and this time the yield of mustard can increase by more than double. But the color of the oil of the early mustard crop is green. Experts say that this time the government should make arrangements to purchase mustard in maximum quantity through cooperative institutions. Like wheat, a permanent stock of about 10 lakh tonnes of mustard seed should be maintained because mustard seed does not spoil for about 10-12 years.
