Following the decision of Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC members to cut crude oil production that led to increase in crude oil prices internationally, the increase in prices of petrol was calculated at Rs 1.77, kerosene oil at Rs 14.31, light diesel oil at Rs 10.11 and high-speed diesel at Rs 3.99 per litre, at the rate of 17 percent sales tax.

ATF or jet fuel price was hiked by Rs. 4,161 per kilolitre (kl), or 8.6 per cent, to Rs. 52,540.63 a kilolitre in Delhi.

Prices of diesel and petrol prices have been hiked on Sunday, officials said.
