The oil companies can remove the brakes imposed on the increase in the prices of petrol and diesel from April 6, according to a Jagran Bhaskar report.
According to the reports, based on crude oil on the international market, they are currently incurring a loss of Rs 10 per litre for petrol and Rs 25 per litre for diesel. In such a situation, if the retail prices of these two products do not increase, the oil companies may have to bear heavy losses.
