Ministry of Finance issued a notification, in which it notified that prices of petrol and high-speed diesel would be same and the rates of kerosene oil and light diesel oil cut by Rs3.82 per liter and Rs3.40 per litre respectively.

For the first two weeks of November, the price of petrol will stay at Rs283.38 per liter, and high-speed diesel at Rs303.18 per liter.
