Oil marketing companies slash rates for 19-kg commercial LPG cylinders

PSU oil marketing giants, including Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Ltd, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL), and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), have recently implemented a downward revision in the retail prices of 19-kilogram LPG refills, specifically intended for commercial use, effective from June 1. However, the rates for 14.2-kilogram cylinders, designated for domestic consumption, remain unchanged.

The reduction in commercial LPG rates spans across the four major metropolitan cities of New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, and Kolkata, where prices have been lowered by Rs 69.5-72 per cylinder.
