The increased gas prices will be applicable on gross heat basis, which means it will directly impact the consumers of the fertilizers, automobiles industries and general households. The government will formally announce the revised prices later, the sources said. Higher gas prices, however, will lead to higher earnings for state-owned oil and gas companies like ONGC and OIL.
