    Diesel Prices in Andhra Pradesh

    What is the overall trend in diesel prices in Andhra Pradesh? Are they decreasing or increasing? Are they steady? Andhra Pradesh is one of the largest states in India. Thus, it is ideal to consider the four major cities in the state to gauge the overall performance of diesel rates.

    Hyderabad is the capital city of Andhra Pradesh. In October 2017, the average rate of diesel in the city was Rs.61.90. In September 2017, diesel prices were up by 2.96%. The highest rate in the month was Rs.64 while the lowest rate was Rs.62.06. The growth rate reduced to 2.58% in August from 2.96% in September 2017.

    Visakhapatnam is an industrial center and port city in Andhra Pradesh. Diesel was sold in October 2017 at an average rate of Rs.63.10 per litre. Between April 2017 and May 2017, the diesel rate in the city was up by Rs.1.87. On the first day of July 2017, the rate slashed to Rs.57.81 from Rs.62.47.

    Vijayawada is the second most populous city in Andhra Pradesh. The average price of diesel in October 2017 was Rs.63.60 in the city. Prices were not consistent throughout the year. The average price in Guntur was over Rs.63.90 per litre in October 2017. The consolidated price of diesel in Andhra Pradesh was Rs.62.96 per litre according to the latest reports.

    Mechanism used to Determine Diesel Prices in Andhra Pradesh

    The daily revision is the mechanism used to determine the price of diesel in all parts of Andhra Pradesh currently. India joins Australia and the United States of America (USA) wherein fuel rates are revised on a daily basis. The daily revision is also called dynamic fuel pricing.

    India introduced the new system in June 2017 in order to bring transparency in fuel pricing. Under the new pricing system, all diesel bunks in the state whether automated or non-automated will revise diesel rates every day. Fuel pricing is automatically done in automated bunks. In non-automated bunks, it is manually done.

    Dynamic Fuel Pricing method considers the daily fluctuations in worldwide crude oil rates and the exchange rate. As we know, the exchange rate and crude oil prices fluctuate recurrently. Therefore, any variations in these two determinants can be easily transmitted to end consumers. This is the biggest advantage of dynamic fuel pricing. Dealers will be able to deploy the best inventory management practices.

    How to Trace the Current Rate of Diesel in Andhra Pradesh?

    The current diesel rate in the state can be traced through the following ways:

    • Consumers can send a text message in the prescribed format.
    • Consumers can dial the customer care number of oil marketing companies.
    • The current rate can also be checked online.

    Note: All the three state-owned oil marketing companies will offer the aforementioned services.

    Process of Computing Diesel Prices in Andhra Pradesh

    Step 1: Computation of Cost of Crude Oil

    Crude oil is the primary raw material. It is also called unrefined oil. The following formula is used to compute the cost of crude oil:

    Cost of crude oil = exchange rate X cost of crude oil per barrel

    Let’s assume that the cost of cost crude oil per barrel is $50 and the value of the USD against the INR is Rs.60. Then the cost of crude oil will be Rs.3,000. To compute the cost of crude oil per litre, the cost of crude oil is divided by 159.

    Step 2: Refinery Transfer Price

    The refinery transfer price (RTP) is the price charged by refineries to convert unrefined oil into diesel. RTP is incurred by oil marketing companies.

    Step 3: State Levies and the Central Tax

    State levies and the central tax account for more 50% of the retail selling price (RTP) of diesel in Andhra Pradesh. As per the data released by Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell, the state VAT imposed on diesel in Andhra Pradesh was Rs.30.86% and the central excise duty was Rs.17.33 per litre.

    Step 4: Other Expenses

    Other expenses include the profit margin of oil marketing companies, the commission charged dealers, transportation expenses, pollutions cess and customs duty. The retail selling price (RTP) of diesel per litre comprises of all the aforementioned cost elements.

    Factors Impacting Diesel Prices in Andhra Pradesh

    Diesel Rates in the state are impacted by the following aspects:

    Exchange Rate: Being a global commodity, crude oil is traded in the USD, which is the base currency. The cost of crude oil decreases if the base currency depreciates against the INR, which is the local currency. If the base currency appreciates against the INR, the cost price of unrefined oil will increase. Any variations in the cost price of crude oil will ultimately impact the retail selling price of diesel.

    Cost of Crude Oil: There are several factors that impact the cost of crude oil. The most common influencers include seasonal fluctuations, weather conditions, the demand for crude oil in overseas markets and political moves in oil-producing economies. The variations in the cost price of unrefined oil will directly impact the final selling price of diesel.

    The Central Tax and State Levies: The state VAT imposed on diesel by the government of Andhra Pradesh is comparatively high. Therefore, the cost of diesel per litre in the state is high. The central excise duty also affects the final selling price of diesel.

    How does GST Impact Diesel Prices in Andhra Pradesh?

    The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a common tax structure for Indian taxpayers. It is levied on all categories of goods and services, which are sold within the country. Diesel has been kept outside the regime of GST. Thus, diesel rates will remain unaffected by GST. If GST is imposed on diesel, diesel rates will be lowered by 20-30%. It may not be a feasible move from the viewpoint of the state and central governments.

    • Petrol Prices aligned to overseas Crude Oil Rates – says Indian Oil Company

      “The Indian petrol and diesel prices have been interlinked to international prices,” Said Sanjeev Sharma, who is the Chairman of Indian Oil Company. “In overseas markets, prices have been varying.

    • Diesel Prices to Raise in Top Cities

      Over the last week, diesel rates in major cities enhanced to Rs.67.10 a litre. This is the maximum price recorded since 2014. The price of diesel was Rs.63.00 a litre in two prime cities – Chennai and Kolkata. The Brent Crude Oil rate, which is considered as the standard for Asia, may be blamed for this hike. Today, the price of Brent Crude Oil was $68.89 per barrel. From the last close, it was up by 0.4%.

      Currently, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) does not cover petrol and diesel, but it covers goods and services of all kinds. It has been reported that the government is willing to include kerosene, petrol and diesel under the GST regime. Moreover, it has been brought to the notice of the GST Council. If the GST is levied, petrol rates are envisioned to stabilise. The discussion on fuel rates has been carried forward to the forthcoming meeting.

    • Government to Reduce the Excise Duty on Auto Fuels

      ICRA, a premier credit rating agency, said that the government is under pressure to cut down the excise duty on petrol to help soften the effect on consumers. When the OPEC had determined to reduce the crude oil production, Brent prices jumped 40% to $67 per barrel this month from $48 in the month of November 2016. This shall lead to gross under-recoveries on sensitive products raising to Rs.22000-25000 crore in the present financial year from the previous estimate of Rs.16000-20000 crore as per the ICRA report.

      The government of India is under pressure to reduce the central excise duty on auto fuels to reduce the fuel price for consumers. Over the last three months, crude oil rates have gone up by 28% from $52.3 per barrel in August-end. This price hike can be attributed to the extension of timeline for production cut back by a few non-OPEC countries and OPEC countries and supply disruptions. Ravichandran, Senior Vice President of ICRA, said that the spike in crude oil rates will lead to increasing in the working capital needs and short-run debt levels of oil marketing companies (OMCs).
