New Delhi: A day after revising petrol and diesel prices, state-run oil marketers on Sunday hiked prices of non-subsidised cooking gas, non-PDS (public distribution system) kerosene and aviation turbine fuel (ATF), following their increasing petrol and diesel prices late on Saturday night.

The price of non-PDS kerosene has been increased by nearly Rs.3 per litre. It now costs or Rs.49.10 a litre in Delhi as against Rs 46.17 earlier.

The price of non-subsidised cooking gas, which consumers buy after exhausting their quota of 12 cylinders per year, has been raised by Rs.18 per 14.2-kg cylinder. It now costs Rs.527.50 in Delhi as against Rs 509.50 previously.

The hike comes after three straight monthly reductions. Prices were last cut by Rs.4 on April 1.

Rates vary according to different local levies.

The price of aviation turbine fuel (ATF), or jet fuel, was also increased by 1.5 percent.

ATF price in Delhi was hiked by Rs.627 per kilolitre, or 1.48 percent, to Rs.42,784.01 per kl. It follows a much steeper hike of 8.7 percent, or by Rs.3,371.55 per kl on April 1.

The oil marketers had hiked the prices of petrol and diesel yesterday. The new rates were enforced from May 1 midnight.
