CNG Prices High – Delhi, NCR & Mumbai
CNG prices hiked in Delhi and NCR. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) prices here by over 25 per cent, following the government’s move to more than double the price of natural gas. CNG rates in Delhi went up by Rs 5.60 per kg – from Rs 21.90 to Rs 27.50 per kg. It is assumed that prices of diesel may also raise.
The new consumer price of Rs 27.50 per kg in Delhi and Rs 30.60 per kg in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad from yesterday midnight.
CNG would still offer 59 per cent savings in terms of running cost compared to petrol driven vehicles at the current level of prices in Delhi. When compared to diesel driven vehicles, the economics in favour of CNG at revised price would be 28 per cent.
For autos, the increase would be just 16 paisa per km, for car/taxi it would be 27 paisa per km and in case of buses, the increase would be Rs 1.60 per km, which translates to less than 3 paisa per passenger-km.
