Most petrol users do not know that all Indian oil marketing companies – Shell Oil, Hindustan Petroleum, Bharat Petroleum and Indian Oil – have been reviewing the fuel price on a daily basis since post mid-June 2017. The daily revision of fuel prices is called as dynamic fuel pricing.
Dynamic Fuel Pricing - A New Fuel Pricing Initiative
India joins the United States of America, Australia, Japan and Russia by introducing this new system for petrol pricing and revising. The dynamic fuel pricing mechanism was tested before implementing in the entire country. The mechanism revises the petrol price on a daily basis in tandem with the INR/USD exchange rate and global crude oil rates. So, all petrol pumps across the city of Mangalore are presently revising the petrol price under the new mechanism. How is the price revision done? The price revision is done in two ways: automatically and manually. Since dynamic fuel pricing fosters the automation drive, all automated petrol bunks will revise the petrol price in Mangalore automatically whereas non-automated petrol bunks will do it manually. Upon revising the price, it shall be made available to end consumers through offline and online modes. How? Smartphone users can download the mobile applications designed by oil marketing companies (OMCs) to trace the current petrol price in Mangalore. If not, fuel consumers can also visit the websites of OMCs also.
