Petrol prices hiked by Rs 1.40 per litre

Indian Oil Corporation has issued a statement that petrol prices have been hiked by Rs 1.40 per litre effective midnight. This is the second hike in petrol prices in a fortnight, as the rates were increased by Rs 1.50 per litre on February 16.

IOC has quoted that the rise in international oil prices and depreciation in rupee has necessitated the step. The hike is excluding VAT and local taxes, so the actual hike for consumers will be even higher. "The price increase has been necessitated by two factors — the international gasoline (petrol) prices have increased from USD 128.57 per barrel to USD 131.00 a barrel since the last revision; and the rupee has depreciated from Rs53.43 to Rs54.15 per US Dollar during the period," the statement said.

The revised petrol rates in the four metropolitan cities are as follows:

Delhi – Rs 70.74 per litre.

Mumbai – Rs 77.66 per litre.

Kolkatta – Rs 78.34 per litre.

Chennai – Rs 73.95 per litre.
