State run oil marketing companies (OMCs) hiked fuel prices on November 20 after an almost two month long hiatus. Petrol rates had remained constant since September 22 and diesel rates weren't changed since October 2.

OMCs had suspended daily revision of fuel prices to avoid volatility in international market amid COVID-19 pandemic. Global oil prices have, however, started increasing on the back of the recent success in various COVID-19 vaccine trial programmes and the revival of fuel demand.
