The three oil firms - Indian Oil Corp (IOC), Bharat Petroleum (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL) - raised the list prices of Group 1 SN150 and SN500 as well as Group II 150N and 500N base oils by Indian rupees (Rs) 5/litre ($0.09/litre) with effect from 1 May, they said.
Brightstock offers from IOC and HPCL are Rs3.50/litre higher compared to the previous month.
The price increases reflect the stronger international market and the weaker Indian rupee, which fell against the US dollar last month.
