Earlier, during her budget speech, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had announced the imposition of Agriculture Infrastructure and Development Cess (AIDC) of ₹2.5 per litre on petrol and ₹4 per litre on diesel.
Apart from the newly added cess, rise in crude oil prices too put upward pressure on petrol and diesel prices across India, which are already at all-time highs due to the recent rally in international crude prices as well as high central and state levies.
Petrol and diesel prices are revised on a daily basis in line with the change in international crude oil prices.
