The last country-wide change in fuel rates was on 21 May this year, when Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman slashed excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per litre and Rs 6 per litre on diesel. In Mumbai, petrol costs Rs 106.31 per litre and diesel is at Rs 94.27 per litre. The petrol rate and diesel price in Delhi are at Rs 96.72 and Rs 89.62 per litre, respectively.

Since the cut of excise duty by the central government, some states have also reduced VAT prices on fuels. The Maharashtra government cut value-added tax (VAT) on petrol by Rs 5 a litre and by Rs 3 a litre for diesel in July. Meghalaya was the last state to update the fuel prices when it increased VAT on August 24, because of which petrol now costs Rs 96.83 per litre in Shillong and diesel is now priced at Rs 84.72 per litre.
