NEW DELHI: In a move which is likely to put more burden on the consumers, the prices of non-subsidised LPG or cooking gas were increased by Rs 76.50 with effect from November 1, 2019. ''The price of 14.2 kg non-subsidized cylinder has been increased to Rs 681.50 from November 1 in Delhi,'' the Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) said in a release.
