Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL), and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) typically adjust cooking gas prices on the 1st of every month. The government also encourages the use of LPG cylinders for household cooking through various schemes such as the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, which provides subsidies to eligible families.

While specific reasons for the price decrease have not been disclosed, factors such as international oil price fluctuations, changes in taxation policies, and supply-demand dynamics are likely influences.
