The hike in prices was the result of a fall in the rupee against the United States dollar, Indraprastha Gas Ltd said according to PTI. “The base price of natural gas being procured by IGL from all its sources is dollar linked thereby making the entire input price totally dependent on price of dollar vis-a-vis rupee,” it said.
