    Budget 2019: Central Government Hikes Excise Duty on Petrol, Diesel by Re.1 (Date:5th July'19)

    The Central Government has decided to increase an additional excise duty on petrol and diesel by Re.1 per litre. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman made the announcement in her maiden Budget speech today. Petroleum products, being a huge source of revenue for the government’s exchequer and an increase will certainly hurt consumers. With the additional levy, petrol and diesel prices in the country will increase by a sharp margin. On 4 July, petrol was priced Rs.70.51 per litre in Delhi and Rs.76.15 per litre in Mumbai, while diesel was sold at Rs.64.33 per litre in Delhi and Rs.67.96 per litre in Mumbai.

    Currently, the excise duty on petrol is Rs.17.98 per litre, while the Value Added Tax (VAT) levied on petrol amounts to Rs.14.98 per litre. The overall rate charged to dealers amounts to Rs.32.96 per litre. As for diesel, the central government charges Rs.13.83 per litre as excise duty and Rs.9.47 per litre as VAT, while the price charged to dealers is Rs.23.30 per litre. In has been a practise in the past to cut excise duty on petrol and diesel whenever crude oil prices increases; however, since 2014, the government has been increase duties leading to an increase in revenue for the central government.

    Petrol is an essential commodity in our day-to-day life. We use it mainly for the purpose of transportation. The price, which is charged at petrol pumps, is the retail price of petrol for consumers. Have you ever questioned yourself that how petrol rates in India are computed? Which are the influencers of the cost of petrol? Whether or not petrol has been covered under the regime of GST? These are very important questions from the stance of petrol users someone like you. Let’s get into the discussion.

    Daily Revision of Petrol and Petrol Price in India (Dynamic Fuel Pricing)

    How are petrol and petrol prices in India determined today? We have a new fuel pricing mechanism in place called dynamic fuel pricing, which is also called daily revision of fuel rates. The new pricing system was introduced in India on 16th June 2017 after conducting a long 40-day trial in five cities - Chandigarh, Udaipur, Jamshedpur, Puducherry, Vishakhapatnam.

    Under this system, fuel rates are revised on a daily basis considering global crude oil rates and the rate of currency conversion. The system is in practice across 58,000 petrol bunks in India. The system brings transparency and addresses complexities involved in the previous fortnightly-based revision. It lets fuel users pay market-determined prices despite the impact.

    Petrol and petrol rates are revised at 06:00 a.m. every day.

    There are two categories of petrol bunks:

    1. Automated, which automatically modify rates with no human intervention and
    2. Non-automated, which manually revise. Only 20% out of 58,000 petrol bunks are automated and the rest are non-automated. The revised rates shall be displayed at bunks for the public.

    How to Check Petrol Prices in India every day?

    State-owned oil marketing entities account for at least 90% of retail fuel stations in India. Renowned oil brands such as Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL), Bharat Petroleum (BPCL), and Indian Oil have strategically designed a few initiatives that help consumers spot the latest rates.

    Impact of GST on Oil and Natural Gas Industry

    The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a unified indirect tax platform that was implemented in July 2017.As on today, the oil and natural gas industry has been kept outside the GST regime. What would have been the impact on the industry if GST was imposed?

    The cost of compliance would have doubled as the industry had to comply with the present and GST tax structures. The implementation of GST would have resulted in non-creditable tax, which means the participants of the industry had to pay GST upon the purchase of plant and machinery. They would not have been able to obtain credit on saleable products. Moreover, upstream corporations would have been adversely affected by a hike in the tax rate from 15% to 18%.

    With respect to the segment of gas utilities, gas marketers would have faced complexities since they had to remit GST on transmission rates. GST excludes five petroleum derivatives - natural gas, high-speed diesel, crude oil, motor spirit and aviation turbine fuel while it covers other commodities such as kerosene, LPG, fuel oil, naphtha.

    GST Impact on Petrol Prices in India

    Let’s take a look at how much is taxed on petrol.

    Fuel cost (after freight, margin of OMCs, refining expenses) Rs.27.51 a litre
    The center’s excise duty Rs.21.48 a litre
    Pump dealer’s commission Rs.2.5 a litre
    Gross rate before Value Added Tax Rs.51.48 a litre
    27% VAT on gross price (Delhi) Rs.13.9 a litre
    Pollution cess at 25p Rs.0.25 a litre
    Retail price of petrol (RSP) Rs.65.63 a litre

    32% of the retail price of petrol goes to the central government and 21.5% to the state. The central government gets Rs.21.48 and the state Rs. 14.15 if the RSP is 65.63. This is the current scenario.

    What is the impact of GST on petrol prices in India? Let’s take an example of the capital city, Delhi.

    A litre of petrol costs Rs.70.56 in Delhi as on 28th September 2017. It will fall to Rs.30.85 a litre when we take out Rs.21.48 paid as the excise duty a litre, the state government’s 27% VAT, Rs.3.24 remitted as commission to dealers. If GST is imposed on petrol, how much do we pay?

    Here goes the calculation:

    · In case 12% GST on petrol, a litre of petrol costs Rs.38.10.

    · In case 18% GST on petrol, the cost of petrol per litre is Rs.40.05.

    · In case 28% GST, which is the highest rate fixed till date, the cost in the city is Rs. 43.44 per litre.

    Petrol prices in India would have cheaper for consumers, but the revenue source for both the governments would have been adversely affected. Let’s wait till the next turn.

    Industry Stakeholders

    It is important to understand the participants of the oil and natural gas industry to understand how petrol prices in India are determined. They include:

    • Oil production and exploration corporations: These corporations are liable for producing oil in its crude form. The major participants of this segment include Crain India, Reliance Industries, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Oil India. Only 25% of the country’s oil requirements is met through these companies and the rest through importing.
    • Oil Marketing Corporations: Oil marketing companies, also called refineries, manage everything from the stage of crude oil till the delivery of saleable fuel to dealers. This segment consists both public and private sector companies such as Reliance Industries, Essar, Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation, Hindustan Private Corporate.
    • Dealers: Owners of petrol bunks are called dealers who can be individuals or business entities. They sell petrol to end customers after adding their margins and local taxes.

    Components of Petrol Prices in India

    How is the RSP computed? The computation of RSP is based a few considerations, which are:

    1.Cost of crude oil plus cost and freight charges

    The cost of crude oil is the biggest component of the RSP. Oil manufacturing companies pay crude oil prices in addition to the cost and freight charges to buy oil from overseas companies. India is one among the biggest importers of crude oil.

    2.Refinery transfer price (RTP)

    Refinery transfer price is the cost incurred by OMCs to convert crude oil into refined petrol. In other words, RTP is a fee charged by refineries to OMCs to convert oil into refined petrol.

    3.OMCs profit margin

    OMCs retain the possession of oil until it is refined and then they sell refined petrol to local dealers after adding a profit margin.

    4.Central and state taxes

    Tax on petrol is imposed by the state and the central. The central excise duty is the same across the nation while the component of VAT varies within states.

    5. Dealer commission

    Local dealers or petrol bunk owners sell petrol to end customers after adding their commission per litre of petrol. Dealer commission may slightly vary.

    All the aforementioned components get added to the final price. The variable components of petrol prices in India are transportation costs and the state VAT.

    Breakup of Petrol Prices in India

    The INR has strengthened against the USD recently. The crude oil price floats around $48 at present. The cost of one barrel, which is equivalent to 159 litres, is Rs.3210 that means a litre of oil costs you Rs.20.19. Crude oil prices are also marked to market dynamics. With this information, let’s now take a closer glimpse at the breakup of petrol prices in India as on 24th August 2017.

    Petrol rate
    The cost of crude oil with freight Rs.3,210 a barrel of 159 litres
    The cost of crude a litre Rs.20.19
    OMC cost computation
    Refinery and processing expenses Rs.6.03 a litre
    Freight, transportation, OMC margin Rs.3.31 a litre
    Fuel cost after refining Rs.29.53 a litre (52% of RSP)
    The central excise duty on petrol Rs.21.48 a litre (25% of RSP)
    Dealer price before VAT Rs.51.01 a litre
    Dealer retail price computation
    Dealer commission Rs.3.23 a litre (2% of RSP)
    VAT 27% plus 25p pollution cess Rs.14.64 a litre (17% of RSP)
    Retail selling price of petrol in Delhi Rs.68.88 a litre

    This is how the retail selling price of petrol is computed in India.

    Factors Impacting Petrol Prices in India

    The cost of petrol in India is impacted by the following factors:

    1. Crude oil prices

    The pricing of crude oil is often what impacts petrol rates the most. Crude oil, also called unrefined oil, is an international commodity. The market for which is dynamic in nature. The most common influencers of the cost of oil include:

    • Demand and supply: The law of demand applies even for petrol prices, which increase when there is an increased demand for oil and decrease if there is a decreased demand.
    • Future supplies and reserves: An inadequate amount of oil reserves increases the oil cost that in turn impacts fuel rates.
    • Political events: Crude oil pricing is affected by wars, natural calamities, new government regulations.
    • Demand from leading economies: The oil price boosts when there is a larger demand from leading economies of the world.

    2. Taxes

    As discussed earlier, petrol is taxed by centrally and by the state. Petrol prices in India will change in proportion to changes in the central excise duty and the state VAT.

    3. Refinery Consumption Ratio

    This is a very important consideration. Crude oil when imported by OMCs is sent to refineries for further processing. A lower refinery consumption ratio leads to a lower quantity of refined petrol for sale and, thus increases the cost of petrol.

    4. Currency Conversion Rate

    The USD is the base currency to buy raw oil. If the USD strengthens against the INR, the buying cost of oil shall go up; when it weakens, the cost will be declined. Ups and downs in oil impact the buying cost of petrol as a result.

    Determinants of Bunk Prices

    1. Seasonal condition

    Seasonal conditions in oil producing countries have a direct impact on extracting raw oil. Oil manufacturing companies cannot have the same productivity throughout all seasons. A drop in productivity gives a boost to the buying cost of raw oil at global markets, thereby affects petrol prices at bunks.

    2. Weather reports

    Weather reports differ from seasonal conditions. Crude oil once purchased by OMCs is transported to refineries. When bad weather reports interrupt transportation activities, we are left with an inadequate quantum of refined petrol for consumption.

    3.Restricted refining capabilities

    There exists a dearth of refined petrol when refineries limit their refining capabilities due to high running expenses. So, usable oil is short in supply, leading to a price hike at bunks.

    4.Devaluation of USD

    As we know, crude oil is traded in US dollars. Oil manufacturing companies tend to tweak prices if the USD weakens against the major currencies of the world.

    LPG, Domestic LPG, CNG, Kerosene

    • Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a composition of commercial propane and commercial butane. It can be extremely dangerous. The way it is utilised, shifted, and bottled should be paid extreme importance. LPG, under moderate pressures, can be readily liquified.
    • Domestic LPG is a composition of hydrocarbons that are vaporous at usual temperature. Hydrocarbons can be stockpiled in cylinders and liquified at temperate pressure. Domestic LPG is a gas with no colors and not dangerous. The gas connection at homes should be done with utmost care.
    • Compressed natural gas (CNG), a fuel, can be utilised in lieu of propone, gasoline, diesel fuel. CNG ignition foodstuffs lesser detrimental gases than other fuels. In the event of a spill, it is harmless compared to other fuels. It can be discovered above oil repositories.
    • Kerosene, also called paraffin, is a combustible liquid and utilised as a fuel for power, heat, light. It is usually a multipurpose fuel and can be used effectively, carefully in order to get incredible results. Kerosene is famous among people for cost-effectiveness.
