As per IOC website, Indane is available in compact 5 kg cylinders for rural, hilly and inaccessible areas, 14.2 kg cylinders for domestic use, and 19 kg and 47.5 kg for commercial and industrial use. The price hike comes with the increase in demand for petroleum products. The fuel retailers revise prices of LPG cylinders on the first day of every month. The price is primarily dependent on the international benchmark rate of LPG and Dollar-rupee exchange rate.
Last month, the customers got a major relief when the Retail Selling Price (RSP) of LPG in Delhi market was reduced from Rs 744 to Rs 581.50 per cylinder for all consumers in line with a drop in international prices.
