Excise duty on petrol, diesel hiked by Rs 2/litre
01 Jan 2015; DELHI: The government on Thursday raised excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs 2 per litre each but retail pump rates will not be increased. The third excise duty hike since November will help raise additional Rs 6,000 crore during remaining three months of the current fiscal as the government took advantage of a slump in global oil prices to five-year low to shore up revenue without stoking inflation. The oil firms had yesterday skipped cutting rates of the two fuels that had become necessary as international oil rates plunged to their lowest level since May 2009. The excise duty hike has now been set off against the reduction in rates that was due because of slide in oil prices. The slump in global oil rates had warranted a price cut of Rs 3.22 per litre in petrol and about Rs 3 in diesel and even after adjusting the excise increase, oil firms will have a neat margin of over Re 1 per litre. "In order to fund the ambitious infrastructure development programme of the government, particularly the building of 15,000-km of roads, during current and next financial year, the government has decided to increase basic excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs 2 per litre," an official statement said. Together with Rs 1.50 a litre excise duty hike effected on both products from November 12 and Rs 2.25 per litre increase in duty on petrol and Re 1 on diesel from December 2, the government will mop up about Rs 17,000 crore this fiscal to contain fiscal deficit. "Allocation of these resources to the road sector will also spur economic activity and employment generation arising from the road construction sector," the statement said.
Petrol, diesel rates slashed, to go down by Rs. 2/litre
15 Dec 2014; Delhi: Petrol and diesel prices were on Monday cut by Rs. 2 per litre each as international oil prices slumped to five-year low. This is the eighth straight reduction in petrol prices since August, and fourth in diesel since October. New rates will be effective midnight, Indian Oil Corp, the nation's largest fuel retailer, announced in New Delhi. In Delhi, petrol will cost Rs. 61.33 a litre, the lowest in 44 months, as compared to current price of Rs. 63.33. The price has been cut by Rs. 2.09 a litre in Mumbai to Rs. 68.86. Rates differ from state to state because of varied rates of local sales tax or VAT. Diesel will cost Rs. 50.51 a litre in Delhi, the lowest since July 2013, as against Rs. 52.51 currently. In Mumbai, it will cost Rs. 57.91 per litre as compared to Rs. 60.11. The rate cut would have been steeper but for the government deciding to make hay out of the crude oil rate slump to $62.37 per barrel by raising excise duty on petrol by Rs. 2.25 and by Re 1 a litre on diesel. Crude oil price in June was $115 per barrel. The prices of petrol and diesel were last revised downwards on December 1 by 91 paisa a litre and 84 paisa per litre respectively (including state levies at Delhi) on the back of declining international oil prices. After Monday's reduction, petrol price has been cut by Rs. 12.27 per litre cumulatively since August. Diesel price was cut for the first time in more than five years on October 19 by Rs. 3.37 a litre when the government decided to deregulate the fuel. This was followed by a Rs. 2.25 a litre reduction on November 1 and 84 paisa per litre on December 1. Cumulatively, diesel prices have been cut by Rs. 8.46 a litre in four reductions. There would have been another reduction on November 15 but the government mopped up, raising excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs. 1.50 a litre each. In the two excise duty hikes, the government has raised its revenue by Rs. 10,600 crore this fiscal.
Petrol price cut by 91 paise a litre, diesel by 84 paise
01 Dec 2014; oil companies on Sunday announced yet another cut in the price of petrol by 91 paise per litre and diesel by 84 pase a litre on the back of falling global oil prices. The revised prices will be effective from Monday. After the revision, petrol will cost Rs. 63.33 per litre in Delhi, Rs. 70.33 a litre in Kolkata, Rs. 70.95 in Mumbai and Rs. 66.05 in Chennai. Similarly, diesel will cost Rs. 52.51 in Delhi, Rs. 57.08 a litre in Kolkata, Rs. 60.11 a litre in Mumbai and Rs. 55.93 a litre in Chennai. This is the seventh reduction in the price of petrol since August and the third in that of diesel since its decontrol in October. Petrol price was last cut by Rs. 2.41 a litre on November 1 and diesel by Rs. 2.25 a litre. Diesel price was for the first time in more than five years slashed on October 19, by Rs. 3.37 a litre, when the government decided to deregulate the fuel. Prior to the October 19 reduction, diesel rates were last cut in January 2009. Since June, global oil prices have fallen by about 40% and have fallen from the highs of $115 as demand from the world’s largest consumer—US fell on the back of its increasing shale oil output. Last Friday, global crude oil prices fell below $70 per barrel following the decision by the cartel of oil producing nations—the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) of not implementing any production cut. Any further fall in global oil prices ---which analysts and market experts predict could plunge to $60 a barrel will benefit oil importing nation like ours. Alongside, the government had on November 13 hiked excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs. 1.50 per litre. However, there was no increase in the retail price of the two fuels despite this duty hike.
Petrol Prices increased by Rs. 1.50 per litre
13 Nov 2014; DELHI: Petrol and diesel prices were on Thursday hiked by Rs 1.50 per litre after government raised excise duty on the two fuel to mop up an additional revenue of about Rs 13,000 crore. The fall in international oil prices had resulted in six consecutive reduction in petrol prices since August and two in diesel in the last one month and there was possibility of another round of cuts this weekend. But the possible reduction has now been negated as the the government decided to raise excise duty to shore up its revenue. Excise duty on normal or unbranded petrol was hiked from Rs 1.20 per litre to Rs 2.70 per litre and unbranded diesel from Rs 1.46 a litre to Rs 2.96, a government notification said. The same on branded petrol was raised from Rs 2.35 a litre to Rs 3.85 and on branded diesel from Rs 3.75 to Rs 5.25 per litre. While the excise duty hike will result in an immediate increase in both petrol and diesel prices, the expected reduction would keep the retail rates at almost the same levels. There is also a possibility of state-owned oil firms preponing the planned review of fuel prices due on Saturday to make the whole exercise price neutral for consumers. Before the duty hike, petrol cost Rs 64.25 a litre in Delhi and diesel Rs 53.35 a litre. While the fall in global rates and the resultant cuts in retail prices had led to loss of revenue to the exchquer, particularly, for state governments, there wasnt any loss to the Central government on account of reduction in petrol and diesel prices as excise duty on the two fuel is fixed and not ad valorem. Unbranded petrol currently attracts a basic excise duty of Rs 1.20 per litre, a special additional excise duty of Rs 6 a litre and a road cess of Rs 2 per litre. Unbranded diesel attracts a basis excise duty of Rs 1.46 a litre and road cess of Rs 2 per litre. The total excise duty on unbranded petrol will rise from Rs 9.20 to Rs 10.70 per litre and than on unbranded diesel from Rs 3.46 to Rs 4.96 per litre. Branded petrol currently attracts an excise duty of Rs 10.35 per litre which would go up to Rs 11.85 per litre and that on branded diesel from Rs 5.75 to Rs 7.25 per litre.
Petrol, diesel prices slashed; no change in gas rates.

::01 Nov DELHI: There is good news for fuel users with state-run oil companies cutting petrol price by Rs 2.41 a litre to Rs 64.24 in Delhi, while diesel will be cheaper by Rs 2.25 a litre at Rs 53.35 following a fall in global crude prices. While the refiners have passed on the benefit of lower crude prices effective Friday midnight, the government has also stepped in to cushion households from the impact of an increase in gas prices. Indraprastha Gas, which supplies piped cooking gas and compressed natural gas (CNG), has decided against increasing prices despite the rate of natural gas rising from $4.2 a unit to $5.6 a unit from Saturday. The impact of the higher gas price is being absorbed by IGL, said sources. For diesel vehicle users, the second reduction in a span of 12 days means that the auto fuel will be around Rs 5.60 a litre cheaper. This virtually wipes out the increase of 50 paise a month that was undertaken over the last 12 months to align domestic and international prices. The fall in crude prices has already reduced the burden for petrol car users as prices are now Rs 9.36 a litre off the peak of Rs 73.60 a litre seen during July. The fall in global crude prices and the decision to link domestic diesel prices with international rates has also come as a major relief for the government, which was earlier forced to share the subsidy burden with refiners.
