Diesel prices have now been raised for the third time in three straight months by 45 paise a litre. However, the OMCs would still be incurring losses of nearly Rs 1,60,000 crore in FY13.

Another reform introduced by the UPA-II is the sale of bulk diesel to consumers at market-aligned prices. This is where the OMCs are facing a lot of pressure. Two High Courts--one in Tamil Nadu and one in Kerala--have issued a stay order saying that these companies cannot sell to state-owned transportation companies at market rates.
