This new fuel pricing mechanism is called dynamic fuel pricing that has also been adopted by Australia, the United States of America (USA) and Russia. Be advised to check the daily price since it is changing every day. In the first month of dynamic fuel pricing, the fuel prices have reduced marginally.
As mentioned in the previous section, the price revision is done based on two aspects, which include crude oil prices and the conversion rate of INR/USD. The biggest advantage of dynamic fuel pricing is that the daily variations in the exchange rate and the cost of crude oil can be passed on to end fuel consumers someone like you. In other words, consumers are linked to market dynamics. In the previous fuel pricing mechanism, fuel prices used to be updated twice a month, i.e., on 1 and 16 of every month.

Stock management is no more a daunting task from the stance of dealers. Cash management can be easier for them. The working capital, which is important for day-to-day operations, can be easily managed. The daily revision system aligns the Indian fuel retailing industry to overseas fuel markets.

As we all know, the Goods and Service Tax (GST) is the biggest tax reform in India. It is imposed on all categories of services and commodities at four tax rates: 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. Diesel and petrol do not come under the purview of GST. Therefore, the new tax regime does not impact diesel prices. It may be levied on diesel in the future by revising the existing rates. Even though diesel is taxed at 28%, which is the highest GST rate, the diesel price will dampen by a big margin. As a result, the government loses the major source of revenue.
