The disclosed price hike is exclusive of state, local and value added taxes and the new prices will be effective from Friday midnight.

Petrol in Mumbai currently costs Rs 78.56 per litre and after the increase and local taxes it will be priced at Rs 79.52 per litre and diesel prices will rise from Rs 60.80 to Rs 61.42 in Mumbai.

The fuel price hike comes a fortnight after the central government raised petrol prices by 41 paise a litre in order to raise commission paid to petrol pump dealers, the diesel rates were spiked by 10 paise.

Two fuel price hikes in 15 days is likely to further hurt the ailing automotive industry in India.
