New Delhi: Subsidised LPG cylinders may get costlier by Rs 109. If sources are to be believed the hike will come into effect soon after the cap on number of subsidized cylinders is raised.

It is expected that after the Gujarat elections the government may raise the cap on subsidized cylinders from 6to 9. This will add an extra burden of RS 9,000 crore on the state exchequer. The government is therefore mulling to increase the price of LPG cylinders.

According to sources a decision in this regard is expected to be taken in Congress’ core committee meeting to be held this week. However,a final decision will be taken by the Cabinet.
