The price of light diesel has been increased by Rs 17.84 per liter, before petrol was Rs 74.52 per liter and high speed diesel was Rs 80.15 per liter.
Keep in mind that the usual change in prices does not apply from the first of every month, but this time the new prices have been applied since midnight on June 27.
