State-run oil companies had resumed daily revision of fuel rates on June 7 after a hiatus of nearly 3 months
This comes to a major relief for consumers, who witnessed an upward revision in fuel prices for 21 consecutive days, since June 7, 2020. That is when state-run oil companies had resumed daily revision of fuel rates after a hiatus of nearly 3 months, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant lockdown. Domestic petrol and diesel prices are determined broadly by crude oil and Forex rates and vary from state to state due to value-added tax (VAT).
