In a few day’s time, as a blow to the CNG users of the city, GAIL, the natural gas company has increased the price of one kg of CNG by Rs 16.
The price of CNG per kg was Rs 63 till April 1, which was later increased to Rs 68. Again, there was an increase of Rs 7 within days and the price became Rs 75. Now the price took up to 79 with an increase of 4 rupees.
People are preferring to buy more eco-friendly vehicles in the city that run on CNG. But the price rise in the same mode of petrol and diesel has made the owners of the vehicles in a task.
CNG users are planning to hold a protest against GAIL. Meanwhile, some of the areas are also reporting a shortage of CNG.
