An increase of Rs 3.25, Rs 2.67 and Rs 3.75 per liter is expected in the prices of Light Diesel, Kerosene Oil and Petrol from the start of March, the reports said.

Initially prepared price hike summary submitted by Petroleum Ministry suggests a decrease of Rs 4.57 in the price of High Octane. The price of heavy duty Diesel is anyhow expected to decrease by rupees 3.5 per liter.
