    Factors Affecting Petrol Rate in Kolkata

    Petrol pricing in India is made up of many components other than the product price. Petrol is usually bought in crude form from the international markets in barrels for US dollars. So the basic price of petrol mostly depends on the crude oil price and the Indian rupee to US dollar exchange rate.

    After purchasing the crude oil, the oil marketing companies (OMCs) get it processed in the refineries to produce petroleum products. After adding the refinery price, cost of freight, and a profit margin, they sell the petrol to the dealers in various cities. The dealer then adds his commission, state and central taxes and other charges and finally sells it to the customers.

    Most of the components in petrol pricing remain the same across all Indian cities, except for the value added tax (VAT) levied by the respective state government.

    In Kolkata, VAT levied by the West Bengal government is what makes a major difference in the petrol price in the city.

    Other factors that show the marginal effect on the petrol rate in Kolkata include the dealer’s commission, the fuel supplying company and the pump maintenance charges.

    State Taxes and Petrol Price in Kolkata

    The West Bengal government charges value added tax (VAT) of 25% or Rs.13.12 per litre whichever is higher as sales tax on petrol, second highest among among the East Indian states of Jharkhand, Odisha and Bihar. The highest is being charged by the Jharkhand government with the lowest VAT on petrol observed at Bihar in East India.

    Effect of GST on Kolkata Petrol Price

    The GST or the goods and services tax being levied on most of the goods and services in India came in to effect in July 2017. Post GST, the uniform rate is observed on various products across India. However, petroleum products such as petrol, diesel, jet fuel and natural gas are kept outside GST net, as of now.

    Therefore, the petrol prices in Kolkata or in any other Indian city are largely unaffected by GST.

    Considering the recent uproar about bringing petroleum products under GST, if petrol is taxed under GST, the petrol rate in Kolkata is likely to come down as the highest tax bracket under GST is 28% which is lesser than the combined VAT and central excise duty of Rs. 19.48 per litre of petrol.

    Petrol versus Diesel Rate in Kolkata

    Just like in other cities in India, petrol costs little higher than diesel in Kolkata. The price variation is majorly due to the difference in the state and central taxes levied on the two commodities. Other factors include the difference in international crude oil price, refinery charges, the price charged to the dealers and dealer’s commission.

    The central excise duty and the VAT levied by the central and state governments respectively is different for petrol and diesel.

    The excise duty on petrol is Rs.17.98 per litre, while it is Rs.13.83 on a litre of diesel. Similarly, the VAT charged by the West Bengal government on petrol is 25% or Rs.13.12 per litre, whichever is higher, as sales tax, whereas for diesel, it is 17% or Rs.7.70 per litre, whichever is higher.

    Lesser tax rates on diesel compared to that of petrol are making diesel cheaper by Rs. 11-12 per litre than petrol in Kolkata.
