The daily revision in fuel prices was paused on November 4 last year when the Centre had cut excise duty by 5 per litre on petrol and 10 per litre on diesel to bring down the retail prices across the country. Following this, several state governments had reduced Value-Added Tax (VAT) on petrol and diesel to provide relief to people.
