Petrol, diesel prices on August 24
Oil marketing companies (OMCs) have announced petrol and diesel prices for Thursday. As expected, the fuel rates are unchanged across most major cities, as has been the case since May 21 last year, when the previous nation-wide revision to the rates was made; there is, however, minor rise and fall in case of individual cities.
In India, the OMCs – Bharat Petroleum, Hindustan Petroleum, and Indian Oil – review petrol and diesel prices daily, a practice that began in June 2017. The prices, whether revised or unchanged, are announced at 6am each day.
Accordingly, in Delhi, petrol continues to retail at ₹96.72, and diesel, ₹89.62 per litre. The cost of one litre of petrol and diesel each remains at ₹106.31 and ₹94.27, respectively, in Mumbai, and ₹106.03 and ₹94.27 for Kolkata. Commuters in Chennai, meanwhile, must pay ₹102.86 for one litre petrol, and ₹94.46 for an equal quantity of diesel.
This is due to value-added tax (VAT), freight charges, local taxes etc.
