State-owned oil firms said they will raise petrol price by Rs6.28 per litre excluding local sales tax or VAT
New Delhi: In the steepest ever hike, petrol price was increased on Wednesday by Rs7.50 a litre with effect from midnight tonight, reports PTI.
State-owned oil firms said they will raise petrol price by Rs6.28 per litre excluding local sales tax or VAT. The hike translates into Rs7.50 per litre in Delhi.
Petrol in Delhi currently costs Rs65.64 a litre and after the increase it will be priced at Rs73.14 per litre.
BJP has flayed the steep hike of Rs7.5 per litre in petrol price terming it as "unreasonable" which will make the life of the common man "miserable".
"This whole petrol price hike is clearly unreasonable, arbitrary and is condemned as it will put further inflationary pressure and lead to further rise in prices. Life of the common man will become more difficult and miserable," BJP's chief Spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.
He said the petrol price hike "will have a cascading effect and prices are going to go out of control. It is condemnable."
