The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) on Thursday lowered the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) by 15 rupees per kilogram for the month of November

All Pakistan LPG Distributors Association Chairman Irfan Khokhar said, as per decision of the OGRA, domestic cylinder would be sold at Rs1,509 instead of Rs1,673 and commercial cylinder would be available at Rs5,805 instead of Rs6,478 across the country.

Describing the price slash ‘significant,’ Irfan Khokar said downward revision in rates of LPG was possible due to prudent policies of the present government.

He expressed the confidence that this winter, the consumers would get uninterrupted supply of LPG, especially in far flung areas at controlled rates.

The chairman appreciated the government for effectively tackling the ‘mafia’, who had been making money by black-marketing the commodity in peak winter season.

Strict action would be taken against those distributors who would be found involved in black-marketing and selling the commodity in violation of the notified rates, Irfan Khokar warned.
