    Petrol Price in Aurangabad

    Are you a petrol user from Aurangabad? If yes, here is something important to notice. We are in 2018 now. The previous year has produced many major events with respect to fuel pricing. In the post mid-June, the new system for revising fuel prices was adopted whereas in July the GST system came into effect. These are the two major events, which should be brought to the attention of petrol consumers from Aurangabad, a city in the Indian state of Maharashtra. This page discusses various petrol related topics in detail. Let’s begin the discussion.

    Dynamic Fuel Pricing – A New Initiative for the Fuel Price Revision

    Since 16 June 2017, all oil marketing companies (OMCs) – Indian Oil, Shell Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum - have been reviewing the petrol price in Aurangabad under the new system called dynamic fuel pricing. This new system has been in use in a few advanced countries such as Japan, Russia, Australia and the United States of America (USA). The dynamic fuel pricing mechanism considers the INR/USD exchange rate and overseas crude oil rates to revise the fuel price. It instantly transits the variations in the currency conversion rate and crude oil prices to end customers. This is the reason why the fuel is priced differently everyday in Aurangabad.

    Dynamic Fuel Pricing from the Stance of Oil Marketing Companies

    Of course, the new system fosters the automation drive of petrol pumps in the city. All automated petrol bunks can automatically revise the fuel price whereas non-automated bunks have to do it manually. Everyday, the fuel price is revised at 06:00 a.m. and the revised price shall be displayed for the benefit of consumers. The latest petrol price in Aurangabad can be traced using both online and offline modes. How? All oil marketing entities have developed the unique mobile applications for tracking the latest petrol rate in Aurangabad. If you are a smartphone user, these tailor-made mobile applications can be downloaded. If not, you can check online by visiting the websites of OMCs.

    Benefits of Dynamic Fuel Pricing

    The Dynamic Fuel Pricing system offers the following benefits to OMCs:

    • Inventory management can be easier.
    • The Indian fuel retailing sector can be interlinked to overseas markets.
    • Consumers can be aligned to market dynamics.
    • OMCs can effectively manage working capital, the net difference between current assets and current liabilities.

    Factors affecting the Petrol Price in Aurangabad

    The Fuel’s Price is affected by the following factors:

    Exchange Rate: The exchange rate of the USD against the INR is very crucial. The USD is the base currency for overseas transactions. The exchange rate is determined on the basis of monetary policy, interest rates, public debt, the overall performance of a nation and inflation. When the value of the USD appreciates against the INR, the price of crude oil increases. When the value of the INR gains against the USD, the price of the crude oil falls. Ultimately, the final fuel price shall be impacted.

    Global Crude Oil Prices: Crude oil is a global commodity and is always bought in the USD. Needless to say, the variations in crude oil prices shall impact the price of petrol in Aurangabad. As on 09 January 2018, US Crude was priced at $62.92 per barrel whereas Brent Crude oil was priced at $67.68 per barrel. The cost of crude oil shall vary on the basis of the supply and demand pattern, global economics and politics, seasonal conditions and many other factors.

    Excise and VAT: Excise is levied on both petrol and diesel by the central government whereas the VAT is imposed by state governments. Any variations in these two tax elements will proportionately impact the fuel price in Aurangabad. As on the latest date, the excise duty was Rs.19.48 per litre on petrol per litre whereas the VAT was 47.94% in Maharashtra.

    Petrol Price in Aurangabad vs GST

    Does the new tax system impact the current petrol price in Aurangabad? It does not! Since both petrol and diesel have been kept outside the purview of the GST system, fuel consumers continue to pay the similar price. The imposition of the GST system on petrol and diesel at the current tax rate shall harm the revenue source for the government. The current GST rates should be readjusted to impose on petrol and diesel. It can be a reality soon.

      Crude oil prices have been dropping significantly over the last two months after the brief rise seen during the late parts of September and initial parts of October. Around that point, crude oil prices were at $85 dollar per barrel, but as per last week’s rate, Brent Crude - the benchmark for crude price - has hit $60 per barrel.

To offset the loss, OPEC, the association of crude exporting countries, has said that crude prices will be hiked over the next few weeks by cutting down on the supply. Speaking about this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the recent G20 summit in Argentina, has urged OPEC to keep crude prices on the low as a billion lives are affected due to high crude prices.

    • Odisha has been Blamed by the Union Oil Minister for not Cutting the Sales Tax

      Dharmendra Pradhan, Oil Minister, requested the State Government of Odisha to bring down the sales tax on diesel and petrol like other states. He said that the government has to decline the sales tax and blamed the Finance Minister of Odisha for presenting the wrong facts to the people in the state.

There is no deviation as far as the base price of the fuel is concerned in Odisha and other states such as West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh. But, the diesel price in Odisha is higher compared to the states that have the same base price.

      “The Central Government has already reduced the central tax on both diesel and petrol twice. The states have to bring down the state tax. In fact, the sales tax has been cut by 20 states in India recently. Even the State Government of Odisha must consider reducing the VAT to make the fuel cheaper,” the Oil Minister said. Dharmendra Pradhan further added that the sales tax collection has increased to 7000 crore in the financial year 2017-2018.

    • BJP to Remind Rahul Gandhi about the Increased Fuel Tax in Karnataka

      The BJP has reminded Rahul Gandhi about the increased tax rates on petrol and diesel in Karnataka. It was proposed by the JDS-Congress government to increase the prices of petrol and diesel more than Rs.1 per litre. H D Kumarswamy, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, in his first budget proposed partially to waive-off the loans taken by farmers across the country. This proposal will cost around Rs.34,000 crore for the government. For generating an additional revenue, the government has determined to increase taxes on petrol, the consumption of electricity and diesel.

      The BJP party was criticised by the Congress Party for not declining both diesel and petrol rates. The Congress demanded the inclusion of diesel and petrol under the GST structure or the reduction of fuel rates. Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, was targeted by Rahul Gandhi saying “It is a joke,’’ when fuel rates were diminished by 1 paise a litre on 30 May 2018. When the Indian Prime Minister received the fitness challenge of Virat Kohli, the Indian Cricket Team Captain, Rahul Gandhi tweeted saying “I am happy to receive the fitness challenge of Mr Kohli. I have a challenge for you. Considering reducing petrol and diesel prices by the Indian people. Or else, the Congress party will protest against the issue nationwide.”
