    Diesel Rate in Rajasthan:

    Rajasthan is the third largest state (in terms of area) and the second most populous state in India.

    It is also the wealthiest state in the country with its economy majorly driven by industrial output. The state contributes about one fourth of India’s industrial output and more than 23% of the GDP.

    Rajasthan has a huge multi-modal transportation system. The road transportation in the state is operated by the Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), which provides economical public road transport service. The state-run buses called State Transport (ST) are the preferred mode of transport for most of the people residing in various cities and districts in the state. Private transport in the state is composed of taxis, auto rickshaws and private vehicles.

    With more population depending on road transportation and people in major cities such as Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur using private vehicles for their day-to-day use, the demand for diesel in Rajasthan is likely to be high.

    Discussed below are the various factors that affect diesel rate in the state, the taxes levied by state and central governments on diesel, the daily revision of diesel prices in Rajasthan and other interesting facts about the fuel.

    Factors Affecting Diesel Rate in Rajasthan

    Diesel price in Rajasthan, just like in other Indian states, fluctuates on a daily basis. There are many components that factor into diesel pricing in India. While few of them affect diesel cost on a daily basis, others affect it once in a while.

    Factors that affect diesel price on a daily basis are the international crude oil prices and the US dollar to Indian rupee currency exchange rate.

    India imports 70% of its oil requirements from other countries. Hence, diesel prices in India are directly linked to the global crude oil prices. As the crude oil prices are volatile in nature and change every day, diesel prices in India are updated accordingly.

    The second factor that impacts diesel price on daily basis is the currency exchange rate. As crude oil trade usually happens in US dollars, the daily fluctuating dollar value impacts diesel price.

    Besides the daily impacting components, there are these other components such as the state and central government taxes, marketing costs, transportation costs, dealer’s margins and commission and other operating costs that are factored into diesel pricing.

    Among others, state level taxes affect the diesel price in Rajasthan. All the 29 states in India levy value added tax (VAT) on diesel. The tax rate varies from each states as the respective governments are free to decide the taxes. Hence, the tax levied by Rajasthan government makes the diesel price in the state different from other states.

    Similar to state government, the central government also levies tax on diesel, called excise duty. The excise duty on diesel remains same across the states. Any revision in the tax would affect the diesel prices in all the states. The recent cut in the excise duty on petrol and diesel in October 2017, is one such move that affected the diesel prices in all the Indian states.

    Other factors that marginally impact the diesel price include the profit margins, commission and other operating charges. Though these charges are relatively low, any revision in these may also impact the diesel price.

    News About Diesel Price In Rajasthan Today

    • OMCs keep diesel prices constant across the major cities on Monday

      State-run Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) on Monday decided to keep diesel prices constant across the major cities of the country. The move to keep the rates static was taken even though the futures of Brent crude, the global gauge of oil prices continued its downward slide given concerns over its demand following the outbreak of coronavirus.

      Following Monday’s revision in the prices, a litre of diesel cost Rs.64.70 in the national capital. So far this month, the rates have declined by Rs.1.52 for every litre in the metropolitan city. In the other three metropolitan cities i.e., Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai, a litre was retailed for Rs.67.80, Rs.67.02, and Rs.68.32 respectively. In non-metropolitan cities like Noida and Gurugram, OMCs charged Rs.65.01 and Rs.64.12 for a litre. The rates of diesel are the cheapest in New Delhi among all metropolitan cities and most state capitals due to lower taxes.

      It must be noted here that the rates of fuel are revised in the country as per the dynamic pricing scheme. As per the mechanism, the rates are dependent on international oil prices on a 15-day average and the rupee-dollar exchange rate. OMCs adopted this scheme because India imports 80 percent of the total crude requirements.

    • Diesel Prices Continue to Remain Constant in the Country

      State-run Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) continued to keep the rates of diesel constant across the major cities of the country on Monday. This was the third consecutive day when the prices remained unchanged. In New Delhi, the national capital of the country consumers was required to shell Rs.66.24 for a litre of diesel. In the other three metropolitan cities i.e., Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai the price required to be paid for a litre of diesel was Rs.69.43, Rs.68.31, and Rs.69.96 respectively. In non-metro cities like Noida and Gurugram, OMCs charged Rs.65.34 and Rs.65.43 respectively for a litre of diesel.

      Globally, crude oil prices dropped on Monday. The fall in the prices was accounted to the fact China recorded its slowest quarterly economic growth in the last 27 years. Brent crude futures were down by 21 cents since the last close to be trading at $66.51 per barrel. It needs to be mentioned here that the rates charged for fuel in the country are dependent on international oil prices on a 15-day average and the value of rupee against the US dollar. This is because India imports around 80 percent of its total crude requirement. It is noteworthy to mention here that as per official figures India imported 83.7 percent of the total crude oil it consumed in the last fiscal year.

    • India’s Government Bonds Incline Amid Slump in Oil Prices

      Government bonds inclined today due to the decline in oil prices in the international oil market and as market participants bet on a solid drop in core inflation for May, which would support the case for the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to lower interest rate. Today, the 10-year benchmark 7.26%, 2029 ended at 101.70 rupees or 7.01% yield compared to 101.53 rupees or 7.04% yield on Tuesday. After ending largely unchanged at $53.27 per barrel on Tuesday, oil for July delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange dropped significantly today, with contract last at $51.79. Slump in oil prices have a softening effect on India’s inflation and reduce pressure on government finances since India imports more than 90% of its oil requirement. Oil prices have declined over 13% in the last month, which prompted the RBI to reduce the repo rate at its monetary policy review last week. Last week’s rate cut was the third this year. The headline retail inflation is currently below the RBI’s medium-term target of 4%, the downward trajectory of oil prices has given bond traders hopes that RBI would again reduce the repo rate. The RBI last week kept hopes of another cut by changing its stance of monetary policy from neutral to accommodative.

    • Are Petrol Prices in India not Declining as Much as The Global Crude Oil Prices?

      As the global crude prices are falling, motorists in India are enjoying the declining petrol prices. Since October 2018, petrol price have declined by over Rs.9.49 per litre and the price of diesel fell by Rs.8.02 in a little over a month. However, on the other hand, global crude oil prices, have lost nearly 30% from the peak of $86.70 a barrel hit since on October, 2018. There are two reasons why fuel prices do not fall as rapidly as the global crude oil prices. One, Indian Oil Marketing Companies follow the Gate Pricing to fix fuel prices, and the leading OMCs are in charge of setting the price. Second, domestic fuel prices depend on the international fuel price on a 15-day average.

    • Diesel Costs Rs.75.58 in Delhi, Rates Slashed by Rs.0.11

      Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) on Thursday slashed the rates of diesel in the country. While the rates were cut by a mere Rs.0.11, it was enough to bring some relief to the consumers. Following the cut in the rates, diesel prices in the four metro cities of the country were as follows- Rs.75.58 in Delhi, Rs.79.24 in Mumbai, Rs.77.43 in Kolkata, and Rs.79.93 in Chennai. It needs to be mentioned that the cut in the prices of diesel came after the rates increased by over Rs.2.50 in the last 13 days. The central government had on October 4 cut the excise duty rates of fuel by Rs.1.50 to control the unprecedented rise in the fuel prices. Apart from cutting the excise duty rates, the government has also asked state-run oil companies to subsidise fuel by Re.1. However, the reduction in the prices was not able to be sustained as the entire amount was wiped out within two weeks due to rising fuel prices.

    • Diesel Rates Keep Soaring

      Petrol and diesel prices have been on a continuous incline in the country. Diesel rates were up 18 paise a litre to Rs.73.72 in the national capital, Delhi and 19 paise a litre to Rs.78.26 in Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra. When revised under dynamic fuel pricing on Saturday, diesel was priced at Rs.73.54 a litre in Delhi and Rs.78.07 a litre in Mumbai. The revision of fuel prices is done every day in tandem with the exchange rate and global crude oil rates. Fuel rates are cheaper in the city of Delhi since the sales tax in Delhi is lower compared to Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai. The High Court of Delhi, on Wednesday, said, “The adoption of dynamic fuel pricing is an economy policy decision of the government and the courts are not supposed to interfere.”

      The Congress Party on Monday, 10 September 2018, had called the Bharat Bandh to fight against the Modi-led Government, which has not been able to curb fuel prices. 21 political parties also expressed their support to the bandh. The opposition party leaders demanded the inclusion of diesel and petrol under the realm of Goods and Services Tax (GST). There was no reaction from the government. Instead, it asked the state governments to reduce sales tax to cushion the impact of increasing fuel rates.

    • Every litre of Diesel Cost Rs.72.83 in Delhi

In Mumbai, the financial capital of the country consumers had to pay Rs.77.32 for every litre of diesel. It needs to be mentioned that since mid-August diesel prices have increased by Rs.3.84 per litre. The increase has been accounted to factors like high international fuel prices, rupee hitting a record low against the dollar, high excise duty rates etc.
