How are Diesel Prices in Bhubaneswar Assessed?

The following formula is used to compute the retail selling price of diesel in Bhubaneswar:

Retail selling price = cost of crude oil + fuel cost after refining + price charged to dealer before VAT+ fuel cost before VAT

  • The cost of crude is the cost incurred by oil marketing companies to buy crude oil from foreign oil companies. It also includes ocean freights.
  • Fuel cost after refining includes the profit margin of oil marketing companies, freight, transportation costs, refinery processing, entry taxes, and landing costs.
  • Price charged to dealers before VAT is the sum of fuel cost after refining and the excise duty imposed by the central government.
  • Fuel cost before VAT is the sum of the price charged to dealers and the commission charged by pump dealers.
  • Retail selling price is the sum of fuel cost before VAT, pollution cess, and the tax imposed by the state government.

Factors impacting Diesel Prices in Bhubaneswar

  • Cost of Crude il: Crude oil is an international commodity. If the cost of crude oil increases internationally, the retail price of diesel will increase. Similarly, if the cost of crude oil decreases globally, the retail selling price of diesel will decrease. The cost of crude oil is reliant on seasonal variations, fluctuations in the currency exchange rate, overseas supplies and reserves, and political events in oil-producing companies.
  • Exchange Rate: An exchange rate is the rate at which one currency will be exchanged for another. The Reserve Bank of India monitors the USD/INR pair. The bank determines the value of the USD against the INR. If the value of the USD falls against the INR, the cost of crude oil will decrease. If the USD gains against the INR, the cost of crude oil increase.
  • Central Excise and VAT: Petrol is taxed by the state and central governments. The tax imposed on petrol by the central government will remain the same across the state, but the tax imposed on petrol by the state government will fluctuate from state to state. If the central excise duty increases, the cost of diesel will increase. Similarly, if the central excise duty decreases, the cost of diesel will decrease.

This is how all the aforementioned factors will impact diesel prices in Bhubaneswar.

Even though diesel is taxed at 28%, diesel prices in Bhubaneswar will be cheaper.

  • Fuel Station Dispensers Getting Upgraded for Three-Digit Rates Display

    Amid the relentless rise of fuel prices in the country, fuel dispensers across the nation are being upgraded so that they could display the correct price when it touches Rs.100 per litre. This is an unprecedented situation in the country although the oil companies don’t expect the rates to reach the three-digit figure mark in the near future.

    On Monday, petrol price rose to Rs.90.22 a litre and diesel to Rs.78.69 a litre in Mumbai. In Delhi, it’s Rs.82.86 and Rs 74.12 a litre for petrol and diesel respectively. Adding to the worries, on Tuesday, crude oil price nearly touched $82 a barrel and is expected to rise further high. Consequently, the domestic fuel prices are also very likely to soar.

    Albeit the new dispensers don’t require any upgrade, a few of the old ones are not capable of displaying three-digit figures. However, despite the steep rise in prices and the apparent inability of a few dispensers to display three-digit rates, fuel station dealers are confident that the fuel supplies to consumers would remain unhindered.

  • PIL Filed Against Petrol Price Hikes at the Delhi High Court

    It has been common news that fuel prices have been on the rise for the last two weeks with the highest ever rates recorded in all of India.

    The extent of lives affected by this have also been well documented, with farmers and the common folks facing the brunt of the steadily rising prices.

    In a latest report, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has apparently been filed at the High Court in Delhi citing the removal of price increase rights from oil manufacturing companies (OMCs).

    Pooja Mahajan, a Delhi-based designer is a person behind the petition, which she did through her lawyer A Maitri. This PIL is expected to be have a hearing on Wednesday and it is still awaited as to what the outcome could be.

    Mahajan put up a compelling argument stating the Essential Commodities Act and suggested that the central government should do more when prices go up so high and keeps on soaring for days on end.

    She further said that the government has given the power to the OMCs rather than working on a fair methodology to fix fuel prices. The OMCs, she said, is using this power to negatively impact the lives of a billion people while maintaining their profit margins.

  • Diesel Rates to keenly observe – says Oil Minister

    Growing diesel rates are keenly observed by the government, says Oil Minister. But, he has not commented on dampening the central tax levied on fuels. The price of diesel reached the highest price in Delhi, the national capital. The fuel was sold at Rs.62.25 a litre. In Mumbai, the fuel was sold at Rs.66.30 a litre. The city is not affordable for fuel buyers owing to higher VAT rates.

    The Oil Minister said the government cut the excise duty by Rs.2 per litre in October 2017, reacting questions related to climbing fuel rates. State governments were urged to cut the VAT on diesel rates. Some states followed the instruction and other states are yet to reduce the state VAT, he added. The Oil Minister further said growing diesel prices are keenly observed by the government. The central tax was cut once by the present BJP-led government. Last year, the central tax was reduced by Rs.2 per litre when the price of diesel was Rs.59.14 a litre.
