Even the prices of non-subsidised LPG have been reduced by Rs 2.50 per cylinder.
The revisions will be effective midnight tonight, Indian Oil Corp , the nation's largest oil firm, announced today.
Petrol in Delhi will cost Rs 72.51 per litre from tomorrow as against Rs 73.60 a litre currently. Similarly, diesel will be priced at Rs 58.40 per litre from tomorrow as compared to Rs 57.84 currently.
Petrol price was reduced following a drop in international oil rates and rupee depreciation against US dollar, making imports cheaper. For the same reason, price of bulk diesel, which unlike the subsidised fuel available at petrol pumps is priced at market rate, has been cut by 72 paise per litre.
Price of bulk diesel, which as per government policy is meant for large consumers like state road transport corporations, railways and defence, was last revised on July 16 when rates were cut by Rs 1.09 to Rs 59.32 per litre. Besides, rates of non-subsidised LPG cylinders, which household consumers buy after exhausting their quota of 12 subsidised bottles, has been reduced by Rs 2.50 per 14.2-kg cylinder.
Petrol price was last cut by 70 paise on April 16 in line with declining trend in the international market. This reduction was excluding local levies and after including local sales tax or VAT, the actual reduction in pump rates came to 85 paise in Delhi.
Oil companies as practice announced price revisions without including local levies but today in case of petrol the reduction was announced after including local levies so as to boost up the headline cut. With including local levies, the reduction was about 91 paise a litre. In case of diesel, IOC announced an increase of 50 paise, excluding local levies.
After including local levies, the hike came to 56 paise per litre in Delhi. The reduction in bulk diesel and non-subsidised domestic LPG rates was also after including local levies so as to give an impression of a bigger cut.
