    Calculation of the Petrol Price in Chandigarh

    Petrol Price in Chandigarh = Global Crude or Unrefined Oil Cost + Taxes (Excise Duty & Value Added Tax) + Dealer Commission + Pollution Cess

    While the above calculation offers a broad understanding of the petrol pricing in India, let’s look at these in detail.

    • Global Crude Oil Cost: As mentioned, India purchases crude oil from oil-producing countries and the cost of crude oil is dynamic in nature which changes based on several factors such as increased demand, shortage in supply, production cuts or geopolitical tensions. Any of these factors impact the price we pay for a litre of petrol in Chandigarh. Since India buys crude oil in US dollars, any change in the exchange rate affects the petrol price in Chandigarh as well as other cities in the country.
    • Taxes on Petrol: Petrol rates include taxes charged by the central and the states. While the centre levies excise duty of Rs.19.48 per litre, the VAT levied by the Chandigarh administration is 19.76%.
    • Dealer Commission: Fuel stations or petrol pumps are operated to store and dispense fuel to consumers for which the dealers take a cut as commission which is included in the petrol price before its sold to the end consumer.
    • Pollution Cess: The centre charges 25p for a litre of petrol throughout the country in an effort to go green.

Until July 2017, petrol prices were revised fortnightly taking the average global crude oil price and the US Dollar exchange rate; however, this mechanism did not allow retailers to increase or decrease the price in case of incline or decline in the crude oil prices, which is dynamic in nature.

    To offset any losses, the new pricing was introduced to sell petrol at the previous day’s crude oil price and the US dollar exchange rate in the market. Therefore, any increase in the global crude oil price will increase the current petrol price in India and vice versa.

    • Petrol and Diesel Prices Can Incline by the end of May

      State-run Oil marketing Companies (OMCs) may increase petrol and diesel prices by the end of May. This is because the crude oil price in the international market has been on the rise since early this year. The increase in crude oil price is influenced by US sanctions on Iran and Venezuela and supply cuts led by the OPEC and its allies. Also, the US administration has ended the waiver on countries importing Iranian oil like India and China. India was Iran’s third biggest importer of crude oil and the cut in supply from Iran is expected to prompt fuel prices in India to increase. The global crude oil price has risen from about $50 in January this year to currently trading at about $70. And, the price of crude is expected to increase in the coming months, leading to a rise in petrol and diesel rate in the country. Despite the increase in crude oil prices, oil companies have shied away from increasing fuel prices significantly, but in lower tandem; however, they have passed on any drop in prices of crude oil to consumers.
