Since November last year, there had been a hiatus in the revision of fuel prices. It was broken on March 22 as crude oil prices shot up in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The prices are set to further raised given the sharp jump in crude oil prices in the international market.

Meanwhile, the Opposition Congress has decided to launch a nationwide programme 'Mehngai Mukt Bharat Abhiyan' against price rise under which rallies and marches will be organized across the country from March 31 to April 7.
