After the recent announcement that in line with the global trend, fuel prices in India shall be revised daily from June 16, 2017, OMCs are also considering revision in daily price of CNG.
The daily change in price of petrol and diesel shall be in force from Friday, June 16, 2017 from 6 am onwards. The step has been decided after three oil marketing companies namely IOC or Indian Oil Corporation, BPCL or Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd and HPCL or Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd undertook a pilot project of daily revision in fuel price in 5 cities including Udaipur, Jamshedpur, Chandigarh, Vizag and Puducherry.
