Fuel prices have been increased with effect from yesterday midnight.
Accordingly, the prices of a liter of Petrol Octane 92 and the Auto Diesel have been increased by 6 rupees to 129 rupees and 4 rupees to 103 rupees respectively.
Petrol Octane 95 has also been increased from 5 rupees to 152 rupees and Super Diesel has been increased from 8 rupees to 126 rupees.
The Finance Ministry, in a statement, said that the price of diesel should have been increased by 9.59 rupees based on the latest international market price of crude oil.
The ministry also stressed that there was no reason for an increase in bus fares and three-wheeler fares, as transport charges were unreasonably increased in higher percentage than the fuel price revision.
