Daily Price Revision in prices of Petrol and Diesel prices has been effected from 16th June, 2017 across the country, which will be in in sync with international rates, much like it happens in most advanced markets. With this India joined the league of select nations like the US & Australia where fuel prices are revised on a daily basis.

Daily revision of RSPs nationwide comes after the mechanism was successfully implemented on a pilot basis in 5 cities in the Country namely Udaipur, Jamshedpur, Visakhapatnam, Chandigarh and Puducherry from May 1, 2017.
Oil Marketing PSUs were earlier revising rates on the 1st & 16th of every month based on average international price of fuel in the preceding fortnight and currency exchange rate. HPCL successfully rolled-out daily price revision mechanism for the Petrol & Diesel across the country with active involvement & support of dealers of over 14,000 Petrol Pumps.
