Govt Increases CNG Prices in Punjab and Sindh

Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has raised the price of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) in Punjab and Sindh as Rupee has depreciated against the Dollar.

The new rates of CNG will be Rs. 112 and Rs. 150 in Punjab and Sindh respectively. It is worth mentioning that the government had imposed a tax on Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) at the start of the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 (FY 21-22) which had raised the price of CNG in Punjab.
