New Delhi, Dec 15 (IANS) State-owned oil marketing company Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Wednesday raised aviation turbine fuel (ATF) prices by 3.6 percent, taking them up by Rs.1,636.58 a kilolitre to Rs.46,876.58 in the national capital.The new rates would be applicable from Thursday.

Crude oil prices, which were $79 a barrel during June, soared to a two-year high of about $90 a barrel Tuesday, before settling at $88.5 per barrel.
After the hike, AFT in Mumbai will cost Rs.47,084.40 per kilolitre against Rs.45,379.62, while in Kolkata, the price has been hiked by Rs 1,731.84 to Rs 54,183.98 per kilolitre. In Chennai, ATF will now cost Rs. 50,269.99 per kilolitre as against the earlier price of Rs 48,496.70
State-owned oil retailers IOC, HPCL and BPCL revise ATF prices based on the average international prices, on the 1st and 16th of every month.
ATF prices were last hiked on Dec 1 by 1.4 percent.
