The government has increased the prices of natural gas for industrial units and power producers for the second time in just over six months.

The gas price for industrial units of all sizes has been set at a flat rate of Tk 30 per cubic metre, the government said on Wednesday. Previously, large industrial units had to pay Tk 11.98, medium units Tk 11.78 and small industries Tk 10.78.

The price of gas supply to power plants has been raised by about Tk 9 to Tk 14 a unit, reports bdnews24.com.

However, the prices of gas for household consumption will remain unchanged.

CNG prices will stay unchanged at Tk 43 as well.

Gas prices for captive power plants have also been raised by Tk 14 to Tk 30.

For commercial users, such as hotels and restaurants, the price has been raised to Tk 30.50 from Tk 26.64 per unit.

Gas prices were previously increased in June 2022 by an average of 22.78 per cent in a bid to adjust government subsidies.
