As the sun sets over Sudan, the shadows cast by faltering peace talks and escalating conflict paint a grim picture of a nation teetering on the brink.
In a significant development benefiting LPG consumers, Public sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have reduced the cost of 19 KG commercial LPG gas cylinders by ₹ 158, as per insider information.
The revised pricing will take effect immediately, and the retail selling price of a 19kg commercial LPG cylinder in Delhi will now stand at ₹ 1,522.
Previously, in celebration of Raksha Bandhan, the central government extended a ₹ 200 reduction in the price of Domestic LPG as a gesture of goodwill towards the nation’s women.
Both commercial and domestic LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) cylinder prices undergo monthly adjustments, taking effect on the first day of each month, including the upcoming revision on September 1.
