Torrent Gas has reduced the prices of piped natural gas (PNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) by Rs 5 each in its authorised geographical areas with effect from August 17, 2022.

Following the reduction, price of PNG comes down to Rs 47 per scm and that of CNG to Rs 87 per kilogram. Reportedly, the price cut follows the decision of the Central government to increase allocation of natural gas to domestic PNG and CNG from 85 per cent to 95 per cent.

Torrent Gas distributes CNG and PNG in parts of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Telangana and union territory of Puducherry, cumulatively covering 34 districts having population of more than 90 million.
