Daily Revision of Diesel Prices in Uttar Pradesh

The daily revision is the new system of fuel pricing that has been implemented in India on 16 June 2017. According to the new system, all diesel bunks across the state will update diesel prices on a daily basis. Since all state-run oil marketing companies have adopted the daily revision, diesel rates have seen a steady and constant growth. All automated diesel bunks will automatically revise diesel prices every day. All non-automated diesel bunks will manually revise.

Features of the daily revision

  • Prices will be revised on a daily basis at 06:00 a.m.
  • Diesel consumers will be aligned to market dynamics.
  • The system brings transparency in fuel pricing.
  • Bunk owners will be able to practice the best inventory management principles.
  • Neither the central government nor the state government will interfere in fuel pricing.

Computation of Diesel Prices in Uttar Pradesh

The actual cost of diesel per litre is computed using the following equation:

Retail price = Cost of crude oil + Refinery transfer price + Profit margin of oil marketing companies + Commission charged by dealers + Excise duty + State levies (VAT)+ pollution cess

Crude oil is imported by Indian oil entities. The cost that is incurred by Indian oil companies in order to buy crude oil is called the cost of crude oil. Ocean freight is also included in the cost of crude oil.

Refinery transfer price is the cost, which is incurred by oil marketing corporations to convert raw oil into diesel. It is charged by refineries.

Oil marketing companies then add a certain percentage of profit margin on the total of the cost of crude oil and refinery transfer price.

The refined diesel will then be shifted from refinery stations to retail diesel stations. Diesel bunk owners charge a certain percentage of commission for supplying diesel to end consumers.

Excise duty is the tax imposed by the central government on diesel. It will remain unchanged throughout the country.

Diesel is also taxed by state governments, but the percentage of tax differs from one state to another. The percentage of tax imposed on diesel in Maharashtra is comparatively high among all Indian states.

The Cost of Diesel will increase if:

  • The cost of crude oil goes up in overseas markets
  • The currency of the United States of America (USA) gains against the currency of India
  • The central government decreases the excise duty
  • The state government decreases VAT

  • Diesel Prices Fall as Global Crude Prices Continue to Drop Ahead of Oversupply Concerns

    Diesel prices have been on the fall over the last three weeks as crude oil prices in the international market have also fallen consistently. During the first week of October, diesel prices peaked to hit their highest ever levels in India as crude prices were above the $80 per barrel mark. In Delhi, diesel was priced at Rs.72.74 per litre on Friday, as opposed to Rs.72.89 per litre seen on Thursday.

    Likewise, in Mumbai diesel was priced at Rs.76.22 per litre as opposed to Rs.76.38 per litre seen on Thursday. With the fall, diesel rates have fallen by as much as 10% since the beginning of October, during which period the government decided to cut taxes on fuel by Rs.2.50 per litre.

    The government had endured significant backlash as fuel prices continued to surge on a daily basis breaking all sorts of price records along the way. The administration had remained muted when it came to cutting prices, however, it did once and called it an one time occurence. The falling fuel prices means that inflationary concerns are going down in the country.

  • Brent Crude Hits Four-year High, More Rise to be Expected Soon

    Brent crude prices hit their highest levels in four years, since November 2014, as the US sanctions on Iran is all set to take effect next month

    On Monday, the 1st of October, prices went up to $83.24 per barrel up 0.3% to reach its highest ever levels for the last four years. West Texas Intermediate crude, on the other hand was seen trading at the $73 dollar mark.

    The rise can be attributed largely to the upcoming US sanctions on Iran, which has caused a massive turmoil in the market. ANZ Bank has also said that the trend points at the market hitting $100 per barrel very soon, and can even happen as early as next month.

    Another source said that if Chinese refiners follow the US sanctions closely, prices are likely to go even higher and more aggressively. A report further said that as many as 1.5 million barrels a day will be going offline since November 4, when the sanctions will take effect, meaning prices are going to go up further and even more steeply.

  • Government Finishes Monthly LPG Rate Hike

    In a clear sign of the anxiety over increasing oil rates suggesting popular anger, all state-run oil marketing companies have been asked to discontinue raising the rate of subsidised cooking gas calendars by Rs.4 per month. In October, the order was raised. In the same month, the central government reduced the central excise duty on diesel to reduce the fuel price for end consumers. This has been the sign of the challenges that are likely to be suffered by the government from increasing oil rates. According to the resources of oil marketing companies, the government can envision the pause on upward price revisions on other fuels also. Hoping to capitalize on sliding overseas oil rates, the ministry of oil had taken a bold initiative by instructing oil marketing companies to raise the rate of subsidised cooking gas calendars by Rs.2 every month.
