Government has increased the jet fuel price also known as Aviation turbine fuel (ATF) by 14 per cent to ₹1.12 lakh per kilo litre in Delhi. This is the highest level since December 2022.
This is the third consecutive monthly increase with a total of 26 per cent rise, which has resulted in a major impact on the aviation industry. This hike in price could be due to the ascension of crude oil prices that has been seen in the price of India's crude oil basket.
In August there has been a 7.5 per cent hike in ATF whereas in the two month before that there was a 15 per cent surge.
