However there is nothing to be excited about the cut made in these two fuel product because rates are still at record high levels. Indian fuel prices have been soaring to levels which were never witnessed before and each coming day consumers have been paying more across metro cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai. India has given up the subsidy method by linking petrol and diesel price with the daily movement in international crude oil prices. OMCs take into consideration the daily performance of international crude oil, government's excise duty and state's VAT for deriving final retail prices in India.
On Sunday, price of 1 litre petrol was pegged at Rs 78.11 in New Delhi, Rs 85.92 in Mumbai, Rs 81.09 in Chennai and Rs 80.75 per litre in Kolkata. As for 1 litre diesel, New Delhi charges you with Rs 69.11, Mumbai with Rs 73.58, Kolkata with Rs 71.66 and Chennai with Rs 72.97.
