PNG will be a lot cheaper than LPG and the rates would differ for the commercial purpose and the domestic use. The Chandigarhians are very happy over the news since it is deemed to do away with the hassle of LPG cylinders.
However, it would not be mandatory for the people to opt for the service and to terminate the LPG use.
