Oil marketing companies (OMCs) continued to keep fuel prices unchanged on Monday across all the metros. Petrol prices have not changed for nearly 45 days now in the country. Petrol prices remained unchanged at Rs 80.43 per litre in Delhi and Rs 87.19 per litre in Mumbai.
Chennai and Kolkata, petrol rates have remained unchanged at Rs 83.63 and Rs 82.10 per litre, respectively.
Diesel prices have also not seen any changes in the last 2 weeks. Diesel is priced at Rs 73.56 per litre in Delhi and Rs 80.11 per litre in Mumbai. Similarly, the price of diesel in Chennai and Kolkata was unchanged at Rs 78.86 and Rs 77.06 per litre, respectively.
Except for Delhi, diesel prices across all metros have remained unchanged since July 26. This is because the Delhi government on July 31 cut diesel prices by Rs 8.36 per litre after rolling back the VAT (Value added Tax) hike.
Earlier, the Delhi government increased VAT on diesel from 16.75 per cent to 30 per cent.
The May 5 VAT hike translated into the steepest ever price increase of Rs 7.10 per litre for diesel. Until July 29, diesel rates in the national capital surged to Rs 81.94 per litre.
