New Delhi, May 21: Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) on Saturday hiked the price of CNG (compressed natural gas) in Delhi by Rs 2 per kg, taking the rate to Rs 75.61 per kg.
The revised rates will take effect from Saturday itself.
Meanwhile, in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad, CNG will cost Rs 78.17 per kg and in Gurugram, people have to shell out Rs 83.94 per kg.
According to the Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), the rates will stay elevated in the near future due to soaring international prices of natural gas. The firm also said that management was looking at cutting operational costs to soften the blow for consumers.
Meanwhile, IGL has also increased gas prices in other parts of the country.
In Rewari, CNG costs Rs 86.07 per kg and Rs 84.27 per kg in Karnal and Kaithal. In Kanpur, Hamirpur and Fatehpur it is retailed at Rs 87.40 and Rs 85.88 in Ajmer, Pali and Rajsamand after the revision.
