Price of petrol hiked by Rs5 per liter for remaining 15 days of Sep!

The government has increased the prices of petroleum products for the remaining days of the month of September.

According to a notification issued by the Finance Division on Wednesday, the increase in prices had been made “owing to the fluctuations in petroleum prices in the international market and exchange rate variation”.

The new prices are to become effective on September 16.

Petrol, with the Rs5 increase, will now cost Rs123.30 per litre.

High-speed diesel, with an increase of Rs5.01, will now cost Rs120.04 per litre.

Kerosene will cost Rs5.46 more and will thus be priced at Rs96.26 per litre.

While the light diesel oil with an increase of  Rs5.92 will now cost Rs90.69 per litre.
