    How are Petrol Rates in Karnataka Computed?

    Petrol is priced based on a few considerations such as the cost of unrefined oil, which is traded in the USD; the refinery transfer price, which is the price paid by oil marketing companies to refineries; the central excise duty, which is fixed across the nation; the state VAT, which is the VAT imposed on petrol by the Karnataka government; and finally the dealer’s commission, which is the commission charged by retail petrol stations. The retail selling price of petrol in Karnataka includes all these cost elements. If any of these elements varies, the RSP will be adjusted accordingly.

    How Frequently are Petrol Prices in Karnataka Updated?

    Earlier, fuel price revision used to happen on the first and sixteenth of each month. Fuel rates used to be constant at least for a period of fifteen days. Currently, we have a new fuel pricing system called dynamic fuel pricing or daily revision of fuel prices in all cities of Karnataka.

    The new system revises fuel prices on a daily basis based on two important factors:

    1. crude oil prices and
    2. the currency conversion rate. Why?

    Indigenous production of crude oil in India is just 25% of the country’ oil requirements and the rest 75% is sufficed through importing. However, variations in crude oil prices and the currency conversion rate should be reflected in the selling price of fuels. The new system is transparent, perfect. Tracking information is easy for consumers as the biggest oil brands such as Indian Oil, HP, BP, and Shell have designed some means to get the latest information. Daily revision of petrol rates is a good proposal for many reasons. Firstly, it enables customers to absorb regular petrol price variations in Karnataka by a little margin. In case of fortnightly-based revision, there used to be big variations.

    Impact of GST on Petrol Prices in Karnataka

    The Goods and Services Tax (GST) excludes the oil and natural gas industry till now. If it was imposed, the cost of compliance would have increased. The industry participants were required to conform to the current and GST tax regimes. If it was imposed on petrol, the cost of petrol per litre would have come down at least by Rs.15-20.

    The highest rate fixed by the GST council till today is 28%. Even if 28% GST tax bracket was imposed on petrol, the revenues for the government would have adversely been affected. A few experts are of the opinion that GST can also be imposed on petrol, diesel, and petroleum products. In fact, the issue was debated in the recent past.

    Petrol vs. Diesel Rates in Karnataka

    The process of daily revision of fuel prices has already been active in the state since 16th June 2017. Petrol rates in Bangalore and other major cities of Karnataka have reduced since dynamic fuel pricing. As on 6th October 2017, a litre of petrol costs Rs.69.17 while a litre of diesel costs Rs.56.79 in Mysore. A litre of diesel costs Rs.56.95 while a litre of petrol costs Rs.69.34 in Mandya. In Koppal, a litre of petrol costs Rs.70.08 while a litre of diesel costs Rs.57.64.

    In Kolar, a litre of petrol costs Rs.69.34 while a litre of diesel costs Rs.56.95. In Haveri, a litre of diesel costs Rs.57.46 while a litre of petrol costs Rs.69.88. A litre of petrol in Belgaum costs Rs.69.49 a litre while a litre of diesel costs Rs.57.12. In Shimoga, a litre of diesel costs Rs.70.07 while a litre of petrol costs Rs.57.58. Entry taxes were banned in the state on 2nd July 2017 and, as a result, diesel and petrol rates were down by Rs.3 per litre.

    In a nutshell, Karnataka is one of the south Indian states to charge petrol and diesel quite reasonably. The recent cut in entry taxes is the primary highlight in Karnataka. Diesel and petrol prices are envisioned to be steady over the next few months unless there are major changes in overseas crude oil.

However, as crude oil prices have gone down significantly over the last month or so, fuel prices have pretty much wiped off all the gains recorded over this period. On Wednesday, diesel continued on its six-week long price reduction spree as it dropped down to Rs.68.89 per litre - which was a Rs.0.40 per litre drop.

      With this, price reduction for the last six week stands at Rs.7.2 for diesel, which is a massive number.Rates have been on a steep decline from the 18th of October and it looks like the numbers are going to fall as crude oil prices are witnessing some of the worst troughs in history.

      In the global market, crude oil prices have dropped below $60 per barrel, which has enabled with the stark drop in fuel prices. There is, however, a concern here as the government is looking to hike the excise duties it had cut back in October, by Rs.1.50 per litre to calm some nerves and voices of dissent against the government. In Mumbai, diesel prices were holding at Rs.79.35 per litre with other cities also following suit. As per reports, prices are expected to go further lower in the coming days and weeks.

    • Petrol Prices Reduced by 19 Paise a Litre

      State-owned oil companies cut petrol prices by 19 paise a litre, while diesel received a cut of 17 paise today. Now, petrol is being sold at Rs.76.52 per litre and diesel at Rs.71.39 a litre in Delhi. In Mumbai, petrol is available at Rs.82.04 a litre and diesel at Rs.74.79 per litre. Fuel prices have declined in the last 30 days due to the decline in crude oil rates in the global market. The crude oil price had inclined to a four-year high of $80 per barrel early October 2018 coupled with the significant depreciation of the Indian currency over the U.S. dollar prompting petrol and diesel prices to touch record highs in the country. However, oil prices have come down after the U.S. softened its stand on sanctions against Iran towards the later’s oil supply to eight countries including that of India temporarily. Both petrol and diesel rates are influenced by the crude oil price and the exchange rate of the Indian currency over the U.S. dollar.
