Series Of Hikes In Fuel Rates
Different tax slabs in several states are the reason for the variations in petrol and diesel prices across India. Fuel rates in our country vary daily depending upon the rates of crude oil in the International Market and foreign exchange instabilities. OMCs (Oil Marketing Companies) were keen to increase the fuel prices to cope with the rates in the international market. But instead, they held the revision for four months from November last year. After the results were announced for election in four states the fuel rates were hiked for the first time on March 22, 2022. Since then the fuel rates have been increased to ₹10 per litre with the support of multiple hikes.
