Earlier on March 22, domestic cooking gas LPG rates were increased by Rs 50 per cylinder. Today, April 1, domestic LPG cylinders are available for Rs 949.50 in Delhi, Rs 976 in Kolkata, Rs 949.50 in Mumbai, and Rs 965.50 in Chennai. As of July 1, 2021, there are 29.11 crore active domestic LPG consumers, including the PMUY customers. In 2018-19, the country had 26.54 crore customers.
