Any changes in petrol and diesel prices are implemented with effect from 6 am every day.
As reported by sources to ANI, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has raised concerns over rising prices of crude oil, to the major oil-producing countries. India imports nearly 85 per cent of oil from other countries to meet domestic needs. Fluctuations in the global crude oil rates often dictate the price of petrol and diesel in the country.
