The authorities have postponed again the public hearing on fixing the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).

Earlier, the Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) had set a new date for the hearing on August 17-18 at AKM Shamsul Haque Khan Auditorial of Bangladesh Institute of Public Administration (BIAM) in the city.

But again, it issued a public circular on Thursday announcing the postponement of the hearing until further order.

The BERC first scheduled the hearing for July 7-8. But it had to suspend the hearing due to the countrywide strict lockdown that began on July 1.
