Petrol, Diesel Prices On November 19: Fuel Prices Static For 15th Straight Day


On Friday, November 19th, petrol and diesel prices stayed steady for the 15th day in a row. On the eve of Diwali, the Centre announced a reduction in excise duties on fuels, resulting in a significant drop in petrol and diesel prices across the country.


The government slashed fuel prices by Rs 5 and diesel prices by Rs 10. Following this decision, some states, primarily those governed by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and its supporters, have reduced the value-added tax (VAT) on gasoline and diesel prices.
