The petrol and diesel rates soared to the record highest in the country, as additional Rs 35 paise per litre was made to the fuel prices.
The petrol in capital Delhi rose to its highest-ever level Rs 105.14 a litre and Rs 111.09 per litre in Mumbai, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.
In the country’s financial capital Mumbai, diesel is priced at Rs 101.78 a litre; while in Delhi it costs Rs 93.87.
This is the second straight day of 35 paise per litre increase in petrol and diesel prices. There was no change in rates on October 12 and 13.
Since the ending of a three-week-long hiatus in rate revision in the last week of September, this is the 14th increase in petrol price and the 17th time that diesel rates have gone up.
