According to a report published in our affiliate website DNA, the answer is actually hidden in a guideline. Oil companies had earlier received a circular to increase the prices of petrol and diesel. It was suggested that the maximum increase in their prices could be up to Rs. In such a situation, the companies have fixed the maximum amount of 80 paise per liter.
