Opposition leaders criticised the government for the increases, which have come days after a crucial election in the state of Karnataka that both the ruling party and opposition Congress party have fought hard to win.
Fuel prices had been kept steady for nearly three weeks despite a move to market-linked pricing years ago.
Petrol prices have risen by about 0.2% and diesel prices by 0.3% in major Indian cities this week.
