    How are Petrol Prices in Lucknow Revised?

    In Lucknow, all 100 petrol bunks will revise petrol prices under the dynamic fuel pricing method, which came into effect on 16 June 2017. Dynamic fuel pricing is a streamlined fuel pricing method in which fuel rates are updated every day at 06:00 a.m. in sync with the exchange rate and the cost of crude oil. Other countries that follow the daily revision system include the United States of America, Russia and Australia. India joins these countries by introducing the system.

    The daily revision will enhance confidence in the sustainability of deregulation since regular variations can be easily transmitted to consumers. Under the new system, the revision is free from government interventions. Dynamic fuel pricing also gives oil marketing companies (OMCs) better control and flexibility. Dealers will be able to adopt the best inventory management principles. In the fuel retailing sector, the daily revision is a major reform.

    Why Dynamic Fuel Pricing?

    Dynamic fuel pricing has been introduced in India to eradicate political influence on fuel pricing, ensure 100% transparency in fuel pricing, align petrol customers to market dynamics, instantly transfer ups and downs in global crude oil prices to end users, reduce the impact on the working capital of dealers and oil marketing entities, and attract the involvement of private participants in the fuel retailing segment.

    Petrol Rates in Lucknow Before Dynamic Fuel Pricing

    In April 2017, petrol rates in the city were steady throughout the month. The fuel was sold at a price of Rs.69.35 per litre. In May 2017, the price revision was made twice.

On the opening day of June 2017, petrol was priced at Rs.69.86. On the closing day of the month, the petrol price in the city diminished to Rs.66.74 due to the effect of dynamic fuel pricing.

    After the first two weeks of the daily revision, the petrol price in Lucknow started increasing marginally. On the last day of July 2017, the price increased to Rs.68.52 from Rs.66.74 as on the last day of June 2017. The lowest price in July 2017 was Rs.66.51 whereas the highest rate was Rs.68.52.

In Kolkata, the capital city of West Bengal, the average petrol rate per litre was Rs.71.50 in the same month. In Mumbai, the state VAT imposed on petrol is high. Due to which, the fuel was sold at an average price of Rs.75.75 per litre. In Chennai, the capital city of Tamil Nadu, the petrol price was lower than Rs.71.50 per litre in the same month.

    How are Petrol Prices in Lucknow Assessed?

    Crude oil is the primary raw material of petrol. It is bought from overseas oil marketing entities. Crude oil is traded in the base currency, which the currency of the United States of America (USA). The price remitted by Indian oil marketing corporations to purchase unrefined oil is called the cost of crude oil. Indian oil marketing companies also pay the freight charges incurred to shift crude oil from overseas ports to Indian ports. Another cost element is refinery transfer price, which is the price charged by refineries to convert crude oil into petrol.

    The profit margin of oil marketing companies (OMCs) is added to the costs incurred by OMCs. The biggest cost element in the price structure of petrol is the tax imposed on petrol. In Uttar Pradesh, petrol is taxed at 32.90%. The central excise duty levied on petrol in India was Rs.19.48 per litre as on 4 October 2017. Other cost elements include the commission charged dealers and pollution cess. All these cost elements are added to arrive at the retail selling price of petrol in Lucknow.

    Determinants of Petrol Prices in Lucknow

    The central government reduced the central excise duty on petrol by Rs.2 per litre on 3 October 2017. After the revision, the petrol rate in Lucknow was low by Rs.2 per litre. This is how the cost of petrol is impacted by variations in the central excise duty. Unlike Gujarat and Maharashtra, the government of Uttar Pradesh has not lowered the state VAT imposed on petrol in October 2017. Consequently, variations in the state VAT affect the final petrol price. The exchange rate and crude oil prices also affect petrol rates.

    What is the Impact of GST on Petrol Price in Lucknow?

    Indian customers pay GST on all types of goods and services. GST came into effect on 1 July 2017. All Indian taxpayers are brought under a common platform called GST. Petrol and diesel have not been included under the regime of GST. Therefore, the current GST rate does not make any difference to the cost price of petrol in the state. It is projected that the cost price of petrol will be reduced by at least 30% if GST is imposed on petrol.

      Fuel prices have been on the rise over the last month and a half and it has wreaked havoc on the lives of millions of individuals and businesses. Both petrol and diesel prices have risen by more than Rs.10 over the last few weeks, which the government is blaming the OPEC nations and the rising price of crude as the reason behind the hikes.

      India, being the third largest importer of oil, has now officially opened a dialogue with OPEC and has urged them to take a responsible route with the pricing of oil as the rises are against the market fundamentals and that it is impacting developing economies majorly. The country has seen fuel prices rise to all-time highs, which has been a combination of crude oil prices hitting a four-year high while the rupee has dipped significantly to its lowest levels against the US dollar.

      Dharmendra Pradhan, Oil and Petroleum Minister, spoke with OPEC, which exports up to 45% of the world oil and gave them a perspective of how crude prices are damaging their efforts. India imports 83% of crude from foreign nations, out of which, 80% of it comes from OPEC countries, while 80% of gas imports also come from them. The country believes that OPEC has a major say in how crude prices are set and hence their cooperation will help bring down fuel prices drastically for the nation.
