    Strategic multinational move could bring positive dividends in the form of further reduction in fuel prices.

    Rs 5 and Rs 10, respectively, on November 3.

    the rising prices of their c ude oil Strategic Petroleum

    Reserves are built by the government for tackling emergency situations.

    reserves were not intended for a situation like that prevails today. It's for force majeure situations like

    natural calamities and outbreak of hostilities or events Tbat lead to shut down of oil facilities."

    elections in multiple states slated for next year
