Petrol price was hiked today by 7-8 paise per litre and diesel rate increased by 10-11 paise per litre in the four major cities, as part of the daily revision exercise. Effective 6 am on September 12, customers are shelling out Rs 70.38 for a litre of petrol in Delhi, Rs 73.12 in Kolkata, Rs 79.48 in Mumbai and Rs 72.95 in Chennai, according to Indian Oil Corporation. Diesel retailed at Rs 58.72 per litre, Rs 61.37 per litre, Rs 62.37 per litre and Rs 61.84 per litre respectively. Today's revision also marks an upward movement of 1.53-1.80 per cent on a cumulative basis in petrol price and 2.78-2.96 per cent in diesel price so far this month.

From June 16, oil retailers Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation and Hindustan Petroleum - which account for more than 90 per cent of refuelling stations in India - started daily petrol price and diesel price revisions throughout the country. With an aim to instantaneously reflect global rate changes in cost in retail prices, the shift to dynamic daily revisions came after the state-owned oil marketing companies dumped the old practice of revising petrol and diesel rates on 1st and 16th of every month.

Since July, petrol price has risen by Rs 4.92-7.21 per litre, while diesel price increased by Rs 3.57-5.76 per litre, in the four major cities.  In India, the dollar-rupee value and global crude prices determine the value of domestic fuel prices. Besides that central and state taxes are also levied.
