Throughout the past five years, ONGC and Oil India Ltd had petitioned the government for a floor price since they had been selling petrol at a loss when costs remained below the cost of production. In the span of 3 years, the price of shares of ONGC has returned approximately 100%. However, its value has lost about 10% in the past year.


Domestic petrol prices will be decided by the price of crude oil that is imported and will be 10% of the overall Indian crude basket. It is going to be updated on a monthly basis. Natural gas rates in your region were updated as of April 8th, 2023. Almost all of the firm's CNG and PNG price hikes went into effect on April 9th.
