After the end of the 2022 assembly elections, the fuel prices have been hiked on Tuesday, March 22, right after 137 days of the gap. Last year, in November, the government had announced a reduction in the excise duty levied on petrol and diesel. Aviation fuel is also up by 50 per cent since January.

Hikes
