New Delhi: India is not considering raising retail fuel prices despite a rise in global crude oil prices, oil secretary R.S. Pandey said on Wednesday.
Separately, Indian Oil Corp. Ltd’s chairman Sarthak Behuria said his company was currently losing Rs2.30 per litre of diesel sold and Rs4.20 rupees per litre on petrol.
