Kathmandu, June 19
The Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) has once again increased the prices of petroleum products.
The NOC’s board meeting on Sunday has increased the prices of diesel and kerosene by Rs 27 per litre and petrol by Rs 21 per litre.
With this, the price of petrol is now Rs 199 per litre while the price of diesel and kerosene is Rs 192 per litre.
This is the first increase after the government rolled back its decision to hike the prices, apparently due to protests from stakeholders.
The NOC has also increased the price of aviation fuel but not that of cooking gas.
The NOC has said it had to increase the prices of petroleum products after their prices increased in the international market.
