In a statement, the firm said it is effecting “a significant reduction of between Rs 4 per standard cubic meter to Rs 5 per SCM in the price of domestic PNG and between Rs 6 per kg to Rs 8.25 per kg in the retail price of CNG in its areas of operation across the country effective from today evening”.

Speaking on the development, Jinal Mehta, Director of Torrent Gas said, “The revised gas pricing guidelines will help reduce the volatility in CNG and Domestic PNG prices in the country, and the long-term roadmap provided under the revised guidelines will encourage large-scale ado
