    Evaluation of Diesel Price in Thanjavur

    Fuel retailers will use the following equation to compute the fuel price in Thanjavur:

    Crude oil costs + excise duty + Value-added Tax (VAT) + commission for dealers + OMC expenses + pollution cess

    Oil companies need crude oil to extract diesel and petrol. They import crude oil from overseas markets in a bigger scale since the domestic production will not meet the oil requirements of the country. Crude oil is of two categories, which include Brent crude oil and WTI crude oil. In India, the benchmark price is considered. The benchmark price is the average price of WTI crude and Brent Crude. It will change every day. Reliable sources confirmed that the crude oil price as of 3 June 2018 was $78.3 per barrel or Rs.5,245 per barrel.

    Excise duty is a central tax imposed on diesel by the Central Government. It can be increased or decreased whenever required. Excise duty cannot be the same on petrol and diesel since diesel is a subsidised fuel in the country. When the BJP formed the government in the year 2014, excise duty on diesel was Rs.3.46 per litre. Over the next three years, it was increased to Rs.17.33 per litre. The government reduced it by Rs.2 per litre in October 2017.

    VAT stands for Value-added Tax. It is a state level tax. Each state has a different VAT structure. It was imposed at 24% in Tamil Nadu in June 2018. VAT is always expressed in terms of percentage. On the other hand, excise duty is expressed in terms of rupees. Like excise duty, VAT can also be revised if required. Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat have reduced it by Rs.2 per litre in October 2017. It was not changed in Tamil Nadu.

    OMC expenses are a part of the retail selling price of diesel in Thanjavur. They include refinery transfer price, entry levies, landing overheads, operational costs, freight expenses, profit margin of Oil Marketing Companies, transportation overheads, etc. In June 2018, the total amount of expenses spent by OMCs was Rs.8 per litre. These expenses are revised whenever required.

    Forces Affecting Diesel Price in Thanjavur

    Both external and internal factors will influence the pricing of diesel. External factors include crude oil costs and the exchange rate. Crude oil is supplied globally by OPEC and other nations. Crude oil suppliers will fix the price considering various aspects. The factors affecting the price of crude oil include production cuts, political conditions in oil exporting countries, the supply and demand for crude oil, etc. Production cuts are declared if there is bad weather. When the production cuts are declared, the extraction of unrefined oil shall be affected. Finally, the changes in the rate of unrefined oil will directly affect fuel rates in Thanjavur.

    Another external factor affecting the fuel price is the exchange rate, which depends on several aspects. The USD/INR is a volatile currency pair. It is one of the most traded currency pairs in the world. Crude oil rates and the USD/INR exchange rate are inversely related. On a daily basis, the exchange rate will be revised. A weaker dollar will boost the price of crude oil while an appreciated dollar will reduce the crude oil rate. In the end, any changes in the exchange rate will directly impact fuel prices in Thanjavur.

    Internal factors affecting the fuel rate include excise duty and Value-added Tax. When the Central Government increases excise duty, diesel price will increase. When the Central Government decreases excise duty, diesel rate will decrease. Similarly, when the State Government of Tamil Nadu increases VAT, fuel rates in Thanjavur will increase. If VAT is decreased by the State Government of Tamil Nadu, then fuel prices will fall.

    Effect of GST System on Diesel Price in Thanjavur

    Will the government accept the proposal of implementing GST on diesel? Market watchers are of the opinion that if the Central Government implements GST on diesel, diesel rate will reduce. Let’s consider the case of New Delhi. If diesel is taxed at 12%, diesel shall be priced lower than Rs.37 per litre in the national capital. When GST is levied at 28%, the fuel rate will be lower than Rs.40 per litre. Similarly, the imposition of the present tax framework on diesel will also reduce diesel price in Thanjavur. It is not only diesel but also petroleum products are currently not taxed under GST. According to recent reports, the government may impose GST on diesel by retaining the existing VAT structure. If this is the case, diesel price in Thanjavur will remain unaffected by the imposition of GST.

    • Demand for crude oil in China rebounding

      With independent refiners pushing to buy crude oil before the prices climb, the demand for crude oil in China is rebounding. The appetite from the independent refiners has driven up spot premiums of oil from Oman, Europe, Russia, and Africa with prices of some grades hitting multi-month highs. It needs to be mentioned here that the increase in the demand for crude oil by the independent refiners, who are known as ‘teapots’ comes at a time when crude purchases for delivery slows down. It is noteworthy to mention here that the prices of global benchmark Brent crude which are had fallen by more than 30 per cent to be just above 50 dollars a barrel by the end of 2018.  

      With the increased demand for crude oil by teapots, spot premiums for crude grades popular with Chinese buyers are between 50 cents and more than 1 dollar per barrel higher than the price quotes seen at the start of the month. The demand, however, is expected to fall as would-be buyers set to leave the office for the week-long Lunar New Year break.  

      As per Lin Chen, Nomura's head of greater China energy global markets research China's refined product consumption could only see a growth of only 0.5 per cent in 2019 while diesel use will continue to contract on weaker industrial output. Crude imports could rise to 9.5 million barrels per day, an increase of 4 per cent from the previous year.

    • Fuel Prices Increased Because of External Forces, Says Dharmendra Pradhan

      Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister, on Sunday said that it is because of the external forces both diesel and petrol prices have soared, but a fall in fuel prices is temporary. At a conclave conducted in the city of Surat, the minister said that a fall in the production of crude oil has influenced fuel prices to go up. Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) promised to boost the production of unrefined oil but it did not increase the production of petroleum as promised.

      Another external factor that caused an upsurge in fuel rates is the crises faced by Iran and Venezuela. An appreciated USD against the major currencies of the world has also caused an upsurge in diesel and petrol rates. Dharmendra Pradhan was in Surat to inaugurate a conclave of plastic and textile investors. He addressed industry participants, entrepreneurs and professionals belonging to the textile and plastic industry there. Fuel prices are on the rise since 16 August 2018. They were up almost by a rupee a litre within 15 days previous month.
