(Corrects percentage in headline and opening para, year ago figures in the table for domestic
sales, percentage for diesel and petrol consumption in text)
    Nov 23 (Reuters) - India's refined fuel sales in October rose 6.4 percent from a year ago to
12.82 million tonnes, preliminary government data showed on Friday.
    Diesel consumption, which makes up over a third of local fuel sales, increased 6.7 percent
in October to 5.7 million tonnes, while petrol consumption rose 5.6 percent to 1.3 million
tonnes.
    The country's crude oil imports rose 14.8 percent from a year ago to 14.31 million tonnes or
3.3 million barrels per day (bpd) in October from a year ago, the data posted on the website of
the government's Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell showed.
    India imported 1.2 million tonnes of oil products in October, up 18.8 percent year-on-year.
    India imports more than three-quarters of its crude oil requirements but is a net exporter
of fuel products.
    In October, exports of refined fuel products rose 22.3 percent from a year earlier to 6.14
million tonnes.
    The data included estimated exports and imports by Reliance's 580,000 bpd refinery. But it
did not contain numbers for the Bathinda refinery, jointly operated by state-run Hindustan
Petroleum and steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, owner of the world's largest steelmaker
ArcelorMittal. Private companies provide data at their discretion.
    Following are details of India's domestic oil product sales, imports and exports.
