Diesel Prices Rise By 20 Paise; No Concession On Tax Rates Will Be Allowed, Says Govt
Diesel rates were first hiked by 20-22 paise on September 24 after July 15. Surging global crude oil rates is deemed to be the reason for a cause in the increase in Diesel prices. Meanwhile, petrol prices remain constant for the 19 days straight. Despite the surge in the prices, the Centre stated that no concession on tax rates for fuel should be expected in the near future.
