    Steps in Computing Diesel Price in Varanasi

    Step 1: Unrefined oil is a raw material required to extract diesel in India. Oil selling companies, abbreviated as OMCs, will buy crude oil from oil-extracting economies. The expenses incurred to buy crude oil is called as the cost of crude oil. As of March 2018, it was $65 a barrel. The cost of a litre of unrefined oil is computed considering the exchange rate.

    Step 2: Oil selling companies will stock the imported crude oil. It then delivers to refineries. To convert crude oil into diesel, they incur several expenses, including Refinery Transfer Price, import taxes, operational expenses, etc. On an average, the expenses spent by oil companies will be Rs.8.30 per litre.

    Step 3: After adding their profit margin, diesel will be sold to fuel retailers who finally supply the fuel to end users in Varanasi. Retailers add their commission of Rs.Rs.2.58 per litre as of March 2018.

    Step 4: The final price, which is quoted to diesel buyers in the city, is inclusive of taxes. Oil selling entities in India have a major role to play as far as fuel pricing is concerned. The scope of the government is restricted only to imposing taxes.

    Elements Impacting Recent Diesel Price in Varanasi

    Diesel rates in Varanasi will change because of three reasons, which include the INR/USD exchange rate, the market price of unrefined oil, the tax levied by the state government and the tax imposed by the Central Government. The cost price of unrefined oil will be lowered when the USD devalues against the INR and vice versa. In the end, fuel prices in Varanasi are affected. The INR/USD exchange ratio is determined by the country’s Central Bank in sync with the inflation rate, the export and import policies, the bank interest rates, etc.

    The VAT component affects the fuel price. Let’s consider the latest movements. After cutting the excise duty by Rs.2 a litre, the Government of India had asked all the Indian states to cut the local tax. No other states have reduced the local tax except Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Fuel consumers in the country had expected that the Government of India will decline the central levy in the Union Budget 2018-2019. Though it had made a few changes, fuel rates (petrol prices and diesel prices) in the city of Varanasi retained unaffected.

    Impact of GST on Diesel Price in Varanasi

    Do you think the current tax mechanism impacts the fuel rates in the city? If you say ‘Yes,’ you are wrong. The GST framework does not include diesel and petrol as well. As we all know, in excess of 50% of the Retail Selling Price of diesel will go towards taxes. If the GST framework is levied on diesel, the existing taxes should be substituted by the highest GST tax rate, which is 28%. It has been computed that the current diesel rate in Varanasi will slide by more than 20%. Eventually, both the Central Government and the State Government of Uttar Pradesh have to incur losses.
