Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) is all set to launch new, colorful LPG (domestic cooking gas) cylinders soon across India in a few months.
These new fiber-made composite cylinders are lighter and easier to handle compared to the existing steel cylinders; they come with various safety measures and are safer too. Here's how much consumers will have to pay for these modern cylinders.
How much do consumers need to pay for new cylinders?
The composite LPG cylinders will be available in capacities of 2kg, 5kg, and 10kg of domestic cooking gas. The metal cylinders in use contain 14.2kg of cooking gas.
