LPG Cylinder Price: Non-subsidised liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) prices were unchanged in most metros from September 1. This marks the second month of almost no change in LPG prices, following marginal increases in June and July. Currently, the prices of non-subsidised LPG refills vary in different parts of the country, and are revised every month. With effect from September 1, the price of non-subsidised LPG remained at ₹ 594 per cylinder (14.2 kilograms) each in Delhi and Mumbai, according to data from Indian Oil Corporation, which supplies LPG under brand Indane.
In Kolkata, the price was revised to ₹ 620.50 per cylinder from ₹ 621 per cylinder, and in Chennai, it was changed marginally to ₹ 610 from ₹ 610.50 per cylinder.

|City||Price In Rupees Per 14.2 KG Cylinder|
|With Effect From September 1||Existing|
Currently, the government subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2 kilograms each per household every year. The consumer has to make any additional purchases of LPG cylinders at the market price.
The amount of subsidy provided by the government on the annual quota of 12 refills varies from month to month. The subsidy is determined broadly by factors such as crude oil and foreign exchange rates.
