Bulk Users to Pay Extra Rs. 25/Litre for Diesel

Diesel prices have been raised by about Rs 25 per litre for the bulk user.

The price of diesel sold to bulk buyers now stands at Rs 122.05 per litre in Mumbai.

In Delhi, diesel costs Rs 86.67 a litre at the petrol pump, but for bulk or industrial users, it is priced at about Rs. 115.

The price soaring is parallel to a near 40 per cent rise in international oil prices, but retail rates at petrol pumps remain unchanged, sources said.

The wide difference of about Rs 25 per litre between the bulk user rate and petrol pump price has prompted bulk users to refuel at petrol pumps.

Before the price hike, they used to book tankers directly from oil companies.
