The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has issued a notification to increase the price of LPG.
According to details, OGRA has increased the price of LPG by Rs 2 per kg, domestic cylinder price by Rs 18 and commercial cylinder by Rs 72.
After the increase, LPG will now be sold nationwide at Rs 129 instead of Rs 129 per kg, domestic cylinders at Rs 1496 for Rs 1514 and commercial cylinders at Rs 5,756 instead of Rs 5,756.
The government has raised the price of domestic cylinders by Rs 39 in the last two months.
According to the OGRA notification, the above specified price will be processed against distributors who sell LPG.
In this regard, Chairman LPG Distributors Association Irfan Khokhar said that no one should sell LPG at a price higher than the price specified in the OGRA notification.
He said that there will be no shortage of LPG shortage in the winter and there is plenty of gas available throughout the country.
Irfan Khokhar further said that the intervention of the police in the business should be abolished. We reject the police illegal intervention and extortion.
Chairman Distributors Association said that the extortion and interference of police and government personnel is unacceptable and a permanent solution should be taken against it.
He said that we are very grateful to the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Petroleum for ending the LPG black marketing cartel.
On the other hand, OGRA has also sent the summary to the Ministry of Finance to reduce petrol by 25 paisa per liter.
