SINGAPORE, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Asia's jet fuel cracks fell on Monday to hit a three-session low of about $4.18 a barrel, with the contract remaining under pressure as air travel is persistently hammered by the pandemic. - India's diesel consumption in the meantime rose 13.2% to 5.49 million tonnes last month from 4.85 million tonnes in August, data from the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC) of the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas showed. - However, on an annual basis, India's demand for diesel declined about 6%. - Refiner Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd (BPCL) had previously said that weak diesel demand prevented it from ramping up runs as the product accounts for 40-45% of its refined products yield. * TENDERS: India's Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (Ltd) offered 65,000 tonnes of 10ppm gasoil for Nov. 6-8 loading and another 40,000 tonnes of jet fuel for Nov. 15-17 loading from New Mangalore through two separate tenders closing on Oct. 15. - Taiwan's CPC has also offered 10ppm gasoil but at 300,000 barrels for Nov. 11-20 loading from Kaohsiung through a tender due to be awarded on Oct. 15. * CASH DEALS: No cash deals on jet fuel and gasoil. * EUROPE: European diesel markets have recovered this month from historic lows, as regional refineries shut for maintenance and Russian exports drop, helping to offset persistently weak demand. - Traders expect refinery maintenance in Europe to reach an autumn peak this month of around 1.7 million barrels per day (bpd), falling to around 1.1 - 1.2 million bpd in November.
