Petrol, Diesel Prices To Change Daily At 6 AM: How To Check Rates

Consumers can check the latest fuel prices though an app or SMS

Highlights

  1. Petrol, diesel prices to be aligned with international rates daily
  2. Consumers can check daily prices on Indian Oil website
  3. Prices can also be accessed through SMS or mobile app
Petrol and diesel rates are set for daily revisions from June 16. The government reached an agreement on the new 6 am timing for daily price revision with petroleum dealers, who had planned a 'No Sale No Purchase' agitation, protesting against the shift to daily revisions at midnight. Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said a daily price revision of petrol and diesel at 6 am was agreed from June 16. At present, state-run oil retailers make daily changes in five cities as part of a pilot programme, the success of which has led to the decision to extend it to the rest of the country. Also, petrol and diesel retail prices are revised every fortnight currently.

With all the hurdles cleared for the switchover, the amount of money consumers have to shell out at refueling stations will be aligned with international crude oil rates on a daily basis.

While the prices will be displayed at refuelling stations, consumers will also be able to check the latest petrol and diesel prices online and by means of SMS and mobile app, according to the Indian Oil website. "In fact, except for the reduction of the periodicity of price revision from once in 15 days to every day, the system of price revision remains the same," Indian Oil, the country's largest fuel retailer, said in a press release dated June 12.

How to check prices online:
