The Cabinet had yesterday endorsed a gas price hike of Rs.190 for a 12.5 kg cylinder of gas.   

 

Development Strategies and International Trade Minister Malik Samarawickrama presented the Cabinet memorandum seeking approval for the price hike. However, the gas suppliers had sought a price hike of Rs. 325.   
The effective date for the price hike will be announced later.
