The hike in petrol and diesel prices has been deemed alarming by many, as the petrol rate in a major financial hub -- Mumbai -- had already crossed 100 per litre earlier this week, and experienced a further increase in price on Wednesday. Petrol was being sold for 101.52 per litre in Mumbai before today's hike, according to the state-run oil company's website.

Petrol and diesel prices in India are unlikely to come down anytime soon. Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union minister for petroleum and natural gas, said earlier this week that this was "not the right time" to discuss a tax cat in petrol and diesel rates since the government's income has come down drastically due to the increase in expenditure on the health sector.

He said that since the expenditure on welfare activities and essential investment cannot be compromised upon, the discussion to introduce a tax cut in petrol and diesel prices cannot be raised. The Union petroleum minister, however, said that the final decision to introduce such a tax relief rests on the GST council.
