Assuming family of 4…1 cylinder will last for 1.5 months approx..
Consider 2Hr of daily gas use Induction will take 4 units daily (2000w). Or close to 120 units a month’s extra ..180 unit for 1.5 months ..
Approx cost for 180 unit Rs.1250 or so ..
Gas is still cheaper I think

induction heating is much more efficient than gas. 84%vs44%. If we take domestic charges for electricity, induction heating will cost you 40 % less as compared to using gas. It is safer and you can cook even in enclosed area without the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and fire hazards.

If induction stove is cheaper, hotels would have used it instead of gas. It’s a no brainer. Gas is cheaper.

My elec bill is average 2k+ for 300+ units in MH for family of 2+1. Gas cylinder lasts 2+ months, and i pay full price for it 900+. No brainer for me, to stick to Gas cylinder only.
