Today on June 16, the rates of petrol reduced by Re 1 and 12 paise while the rates of diesel have come down by Re 1 and 24 paise. Yes, that right! The prices of petrol and diesel will start changing every day from today onwards at early morning 6 am. The daily price change of fuel will be displayed at all petrol pumps but the consumers can also check it online on the official website of the Indian Oil, via SMS and through a mobile app.
This initiative of daily revision of petrol prices was first started in Chandigarh, Puducherry, Udaipur, Jamshedpur and Visakhapatnam as a pilot project. The successful response from the consumers in these piloting cities led to its full-fledged implementation across India from today on.
The revision of petrol and diesel prices has been initiated across India in alignment with the international crude oil prices that fluctuates on daily basis. This initiative by the Government of India is said to provide maximum benefit to the consumers who can check the revision in fuel prices daily and get their vehicles refilled on days with fewer rates. Earlier, the revision in the petrol and diesel rates were made at the interval of every 15 days but now it will be followed as a daily regime.
