    • Diesel Prices Turning into a Massive Worry for the Narendra Modi Government

      Up until recently, India was known as the fastest growing economy in the world, but the current situation has caused the government to rethink everything. Fuel prices have been on the rise and the rupee has turned into the weakest performer in Asia and is falling sharply against the dollar. The government, which has decided against tax cuts on fuel is being pressured by the opposition as well as the people to put a stop to fuel prices from climbing further.

      On Monday, diesel prices were close to Rs.80 per litre in Mumbai with other metro cities like Kolkata and Chennai seeing prices hold at Rs.75 per litre range. The falling rupee, which seemed to have recovered, started on the free fall and it is turning into a major concern for the government.

    • Government Unlikely to Reduce Taxes as Massive Tax Loss Predicted

      On the 10th of September, several opposition parties including the Indian National Congress (INC), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) among many others organised a bandh protesting the rise in fuel prices while urging the NDA government to cut taxes on fuel.

      However, the government has decided not to do so despite significant flak it is receiving as it has predicted a Rs.30,000 crore loss in revenue. This loss, an official from the government, said will occur if fuel prices are cut by as little as Rs.2 per litre.

      Rebuffing against the opposition, the NDA administration blamed a variety of external factors, mainly the rise of crude oil prices over the last few weeks. The official statement further stated that over 40% of the revenue collected will be funneled into various states, and cutting the VAT would have a significant impact on a number of administration as well.

      Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has held meetings with BJP President Amit Shah concluding that the crude prices right now are fuelling current account deficit, and the cutting of taxes will increase the deficit and also bring out a significant loss for the government.

    • Diesel Prices Increases For 15th Day To Touch Rs.69.17 Per Litre in Delhi

      Diesel prices continued to rally to touch another peak for the 15th consecutive day. Diesel was sold at Rs.69.17 per litre in Delhi. The new rate for diesel in other metros was revised to stand at Rs.73.64 per litre in Mumbai. With the Central Government coming under attack over the diesel price hike, Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has assured the public that the government will soon find a solution to deal with the situation. He added that the increase in diesel prices is largely due to the production cut by the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) as well as due to the rise in crude or unrefined oil prices in the global market.

    • The Price of Diesel remained unaffected

      The much-awaited Union Budget 2018 was presented by the Indian Finance Minister on 1 February 2018 in the parliament. In Mumbai, the diesel retailed at the rate of Rs.68.27 a litre on the following day. In Delhi, the diesel price was Rs.64.11 per litre on 2 February 2018. A cut in the excise duty was announced by Arun Jaitley, who is the Finance Minister of India.

      Though an additional excise duty of Rs.6 was levied, the diesel prices were not affected. There have been demands to impose tax on diesel at the GST rates, but the Union Budget 2018 came with no such feature. Over the last two months, diesel rates have been on the rise under the daily fuel pricing mechanism. They retailed at their record highs.
