As per the increased rates, petrol will now cost Rs 123 per litre whereas diesel and kerosene will each cost Rs 106 per litre. Similarly, the price of aviation turbine fuel for domestic flights has been raised to Rs 78 per litre.

Meanwhile, NOC has informed that the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), better known as cooking gas, will remain the same. Likewise, the price of aviation turbine fuel for international flights has also not been hiked.
