The price of Petrol was last revised downwards w.e.f. 15th Oct’14 by Rs. 1.21/ litre (including state levies at Delhi) on the back of declining international oil prices.

As for Diesel prices, the Government decided to make Diesel prices market determined for all consumers on 18th October, 2014. Subsequently, w.e.f 19.10.2014, based on prevailing level of international prices and INR-USD exchange rate, the selling price of Diesel in domestic market was reduced by Rs. 3.37/ litre (including state levies at Delhi) with corresponding decrease in other states.

The combined impact of both these factors warrant the said decrease in Retail Selling Prices of Petrol and Diesel.

The movement of prices in international oil market and INR-USD exchange rate shall continue to be closely monitored and developing trends of the market will be reflected in future price changes.
