The cost of heating water on an electric stove is Rs 9.46
According to the calculation of Deepak, the rate of electricity has been considered as Rs 8 per unit basis. Whereas the price of gas cylinder has been taken at Rs 843. Accordingly, LPG of Rs 10.15 is spent to boil 10 liters of water. If the same amount of water is heated on an electric stove, it costs Rs 9.46. At the same time, if this water is heated through an induction stove, then this cost comes to Rs 8.33 only. In such a situation, one can guess how much difference has made in boiling only 10 liters of water. In such a situation, you can save a lot of money in cooking one time meal. Not only this, the states where electricity is being subsidized. There this cost may be even less.
Gas became expensive by Rs 140 per cylinder in just six months
On July 1, 2021, the price of LPG cylinder was increased by Rs 140 to Rs 834, which was earlier Rs 694 in Delhi on January 1. The government had abolished the subsidy given on LPG in the year 2020. Because of this, the consumers have to pay almost full price.
