New Delhi, Oct 4 — The price of petrol was hiked on Tuesday by 14 paise per litre and that of diesel by 10 paise a litre, following increase in commission paid to dealers.

Petrol will now cost Rs 64.72 a litre in Delhi from midnight tonight as against Rs 64.58 per litre currently.

Diesel will cost Rs 52.61 per litre as against Rs 52.51 a litre at present.

Announcing the price decision, Indian Oil Corp (IOC) said, "There will be corresponding price revisions on petrol and diesel in other states on account of change in dealer commission."
