Reportedly, the diesel prices stood at Rs 68.68 a litre in Delhi, Rs 72.02 a litre in Mumbai, Rs 71.04 a litre in Kolkata and Rs 72.58 in Chennai.

The increase in the prices was reported post rising tensions in the Middle East after the assassination of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani in the US strike ordered by US President Trump.

It may be mentioned here that domestic petrol and diesel prices are reviewed by oil marketing companies on a daily basis. Price revisions are generally implemented at the fuel stations with effect from 6 am.
