However, the fixed charges for protected consumers have been raised from 10 rupees to 400 rupees, and this will take effect from November 1.

For non-protected domestic consumers, gas prices have seen an increase of more than 172%. As per the announcement, the prices for consumers using 25 cubic meters of gas per month have been increased from 200 to 300 rupees per MMBTU (Million British Thermal Units), for those using 60 cubic meters per month, the price has gone up from 300 to 600 rupees per MMBTU, and for those consuming 100 cubic meters or more per month, the price has been raised from 400 to 1000 rupees per MMBTU.
