Bangladesh-based Titas Gas Transmission & Distribution has proposed raising its gas prices by an average of 75%, provoking opposition from consumer groups, according to the Dhaka Tribune.

The groups voiced their concerns at a hearing of Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission on Tuesday.

The higher cost of gas will affect the price of power, transport and consumer goods. Power plants will see prices rise by 206% while tariffs for fertiliser companies will also go up.
