Subsidized as well as non-subsidized LPG now costs Rs 884.50 per 14.2-kg cylinder in Delhi, according to a price notification of oil companies.
This is the third straight increase in prices in less than two months.
Subsidized and non-subsidized LPG rates were hiked by Rs 25.50 per cylinder on July 1.
Non-subsidized LPG rates rose by Rs 25 per cylinder on August 1 and by the same proportion on August 18.
Industry sources said the subsidized LPG price was not raised on August 1 because Parliament was in session and the government could have been attacked by the opposition.
The latest increase in subsidized LPG price now has taken the cumulative rate hike since January 1 to Rs 190 per cylinder.
The government policy provides for the supply of 12 cylinders of 14.2-kg each per household at subsidized or below-market rates.
