The government has hiked petrol and diesel prices marginally across the country, reports CNBC-TV18’s Gautam Broker.
With effect from Tuesday midnight, petrol and diesel prices across the country will become costlier by 11-12 paise a litre and 9-10 paise a litre, respectively as the government decided to increase the commission to petrol pump dealers.
In Delhi, the price of petrol will go up by 13 paise to Rs 51.56 a litre, while diesel will be 9 paise costlier to Rs 37.71 per litre.
The government in June took decisive steps towards decontrolling fuel prices with the Empowered Group of Ministers freeing petrol from price controls.
Diesel prices however continue to be governed by the government.
