The government is likely to raise the retail price of petrol by 2 rupees a litre and diesel by one rupee this week, a senior source at the oil ministry said on Monday.

"The decision will be taken at a cabinet meeting this week," the official, who did not wish to be identified, said.

India caps prices of widely consumed fuels but has been under pressure to raise them after a surge in the cost of crude oil led to jump in losses at state oil retailers.
