The facility has been launched in Bangalore, Chennai, Gorakhpur, Lucknow and Aligarh. Altogether, 11 kirana stores in these cities are selling the refills. The sale is expected to be expanded to 50 more cities in the near future.

These cylinders will be blue in color with five kilogram LPG in them. According to sources, the price of these cylinders will vary between Rs 1600 to Rs 1700.

However, the customers who want to purchase the cylinder for the first time will have to show their identity cards. Along with the money for cylinder and regulator, they will also have to pay for the administrative fees.

Earlier in October 2013, the sale of five-kg Free Trade LPG cylinders was launched from select Indian Oil retail outlets (petrol/ diesel stations) pan-India.
