Domestic cooking gas (LPG) price was on Thursday hiked by Rs 2.08 per cylinder and non-subsidised gas by Rs 42.50 per bottle, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) said.

The increase comes after three straight monthly reduction in rates.

The rise has been necessitated due to tax impact on increased market rate of the fuel, IOC said in a statement.

Prior to this, prices had been reduced by a total of Rs 13.39 per cylinder.
