    Petrol Price in Chandigarh

    Chandigarh is a union territory in India and serves as the capital of two states - Haryana and Punjab. The city is one of the oldest planned cities in post-independence India and is famous for its modern architecture and urban planning. Spread over an area of 114, the city is well served by the public transportation system as well as private vehicles.

    With a burgeoning population, Chandigarh’s transportations depend on fuel to aid its economy. The city has the largest number of vehicles per capita in the country and the vehicle density in the city has only increased in the recent past and petrol has become an important commodity.

    State-owned Oil-Marketing Companies (OMCs) such as Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum operate nearly 90% of the petrol pumps in Chandigarh. Since India imports crude or unrefined oil from the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the petrol price in Chandigarh and other cities are relatively higher. There are several components which determine the Retail Selling Price (RSP) of petrol in India. Here’s an analysis of each of these components and how the petrol pricing is computed.

    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.

    Why do Petrol Price Change Daily in Chandigarh?

    Under the new ‘dynamic fuel pricing’ mechanism, petrol rates are revised daily. 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.

    How to Check Petrol Price Daily in Chandigarh?

    With the new pricing mechanism in place, the current petrol price is more or less different compared to the previous day’s price. It’s quite challenging to know today’s petrol price in a city; however, OMCs have developed several ways to check petrol price daily.

    The Goods and Service Tax (GST) was introduced on 1 July 2017 which is applicable on sale of goods or services in the country. However, petroleum products, electricity and alcoholic beverages are exempted from the GST. This is due to state governments losing out on the revenue generated through the sale of petroleum products in the state.

    • Petrol Prices Hit the Highest Ever of Rs.80.87 per litre in Delhi

      Fuel prices have been on the for quite a while now and as per reports seen on the 11th of September, petrol prices hit their highest ever of Rs.80.87 per litre in Delhi while the same was Rs.88 and change per litre in Mumbai - the highest in India.

      A leading media company did an in-depth report on why exactly the fuel prices are rising in the country and produced some conclusive findings.

      According to this, prices have rise by 238% in the in the last 20 years, with prices holding at just Rs.23 per litre way back in September 1998. The report said that there are five main reasons affecting fuel prices, they are: the price at which OMCs buy oil from the refinery, the freight charges that OMCs incur in transporting the refined oil, and the rupee.

      When the rupee is weak the cost incurred will also rise considerably which is what is currently happening, the report said. The other three factors are excise duty the government charges on the import of crude, dealer commission, who take their cut while selling the fuel, and the final one is VAT, which the government again charges against a shipment.

    • Petrol Prices Hiked for the Fourth Straight Day

      Petrol prices in the country were hiked for the fourth straight day by the Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs). Following the hike, petrol in the national capital was being sold for Rs.78.18 per litre while in other metro cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai the prices were Rs.85.60, Rs.81.11 and Rs.81.22 respectively. The revised rates came into effect from 6 am on Wednesday. The surge in petrol prices was accounted to the rise in the cost of crude oil and high excise duty. It needs to be mentioned that the total incidence on petrol comes up to 45-50%. On the global front, crude oil prices were stable on Wednesday. This was primarily because of falling supplies from Iran as well as rising production outside OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries). It needs to be mentioned that going forward petrol and diesel will not fall under the purview of Goods and Services Tax (GST). The development comes about because neither the Central government nor the states are in favour on fears of heavy revenue loss.

    • Petrol to Transact at High Prices in Metro Cities

      Dynamic fuel pricing is impacting the petrol rate to grow day by day. On 24 January 2018, fuel consumers bought the fuel at Rs.80.36 a litre in Mumbai and at Rs.72.49 a litre in Delhi. Similarly, the price tags of a litre of petrol in Chennai and Kolkata were Rs.75.18 a litre and Rs.75.18 a litre correspondingly. Over the last 30 days, the petrol rate have been growing. To ease the situation for commoners, the Oil Ministry urged the Finance Ministry to reduce the central tax. Till date, a tax of Rs.19.48 a litre is imposed on petrol.

      The country adopted dynamic fuel pricing, a new fuel reviewing approach, post mid-June last year. Since then petrol rates were observed moving downwards for the first 15 days. The petrol rate started moving upwards after that. The growing rate was curbed by reducing the central tax to Rs.19.48 a litre on the fuel. Moreover, a few states declared a cut in state levies in October 2017.

      The Ministry for Oil is also finding out the best recipes to bring petrol under the newly introduced tax system, the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Dharmendra Pradhan, Oil Minister, said “We have suggested the Council of GST to tax petrol at GST slabs and are confident that the GST Council will do so in the near future.
