(New Delhi)Petrol & Diesel Pricc Hike Breaks All Previous Records
Fuel rates are hiked again by 35 paise a litre.
The price of petrol in Delhi rose to its highest-ever level of Rs 105.14 a litre and
Rs 111.09 per litre in Mumbai
In Mumbai, diesel now comes for Rs 101.78 a litre; while in Delhi, it costs Rs 93.87.
This is the second straight day of 35 paise per litre increase in petrol and diesel prices. There was no change in rates on October 12 and 13.
Since the ending of a three-week-long hiatus in rate revision in the last week of September, this is the 14th increase in petrol price and the 17th time that diesel rates have gone up.
While petrol price in most of the country is already above Rs 100-a-litre mark, diesel rates have crossed that level in a dozen states, including Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Kerala, Karnataka and Leh.
Prices differ from state to state depending on the incidence of local taxes.
Shedding the modest price change policy, state-owned fuel retailers have since October 6 started passing on the larger incidence of cost to consumers.
This is because the international benchmark Brent crude is trading at USD 84.61 per barrel for the first time in seven years.
(New Delhi )Rahul Gandhi Slams Govt Over LPG Price Hike .₹25 on Domestic and ₹75 on Commercial Cylinder are Raised
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday hit out at the government over the rise in prices of domestic cooking gas, and said the country is uniting against this injustice.
The Congress party has been attacking the government over the rise in petrol, diesel and LPG prices and has been demanding reduction in them by removing some of the taxes imposed by the central government.
“The one who is forcing the public to sleep empty stomach is himself sleeping under the shadow of friends….but the country is uniting against the injustice,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
The Congress leader used the hashtag “#IndiaAgainstBJPLoot” and shared a chart with prices of domestic LPG cylinders in four metros in the country from January this year showing how the prices have risen.
