Maximum City pays maximum for Petrol

With the Rs.3 increase in drought cess, collected along with VAT from Friday midnight, Mumbaikars now pay the highest price for petrol in the country. Petrol now costs Rs.77.45 per litre in the city, while it's around Rs.77.14 in Nagpur -both higher than in Bhopal, which till Friday had the country's highest rate at Rs.75.85. In comparison, it's almost 10 rupees less in Delhi at Rs.68.26 .

Incidentally, the drought cess collected all over Maharashtra has been increased to Rs.9 from Rs.6 at a time when there's no drought in the state, thanks to abundant rainfall last monsoon.
