Petrol and diesel prices rose to fresh highs on Thursday as Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas saw a change of guard with Hardeep Singh Puri taking over from Dharmendra Pradhan.

Petrol price was hiked by 35 paise per litre and diesel by 9 paise, according to a price notification of state-owned fuel retailers.

This took fuel prices across the country to a fresh high.

Soon after taking charge of the ministry, Mr. Puri said he would comment on the issue only after getting a full briefing from the officials.

“Give me some time. I need to be briefed on the issues,” he told reporters. “It will be very wrong for me to comment on it (fuel prices) when I have just stepped into this building.” Petrol price, which has already crossed ₹100 in over half of the country, rose to ₹100.56 a litre in Delhi and ₹106.59 in Mumbai. Diesel rate climbed to ₹89.62 per litre in Delhi and ₹97.18 in Mumbai.

“My formal training is in an area where comments are not offered without full information,” Mr. Puri, a former diplomat, said.

A 1974-batch IFS officer, Mr. Puri comes into the oil ministry at a time when the country is reeling under a surge in fuel prices.
