Petrol to be costlier by 30 paise and Diesel by 18 paise in Delhi soon

Petrol prices and Diesel prices will be costlier in Delhi  by 30 paise and 18 paise respectively as the oil ministry has agreed to raise dealers' commission, Federation of All India Petroleum Traders General Secretary Ajay Bansal said.

After the hike, petrol will cost Rs 68.2 a litre and diesel Rs 47.13 per litre in Delhi. The oil ministry is yet to announce its decision of raising dealers' commission, which will raise pump prices of auto fuels. New rates would be applicable only after a formal announcement by the ministry.

"We demanded the government to increase out commission on petrol by 67 paise and diesel by 42 paise because the oil ministry did not factor in fuel evaporation, free services to customers and and running pumps on gensets in case of electricity failure," Bansal said. Currently, dealers get a commission of Rs 1.5 per litre on petrol and Rs 91 paise on diesel.
