Revising fuel rates on a daily basis is called the daily revision or dynamic fuel pricing. The daily revision has been in use in other developed countries such as Russia, the United States of America, Australia and German.

    Dynamic fuel pricing offers significant benefits to consumers and oil marketing companies. Fuel pricing is done on the basis of the cost of crude oil and the currency conversion ratio under the dynamic fuel pricing system. Variations in crude oil rates and the exchange rate are reflected instantly in the retail selling price of petrol. Inventory management is not complicated under the new system.

    How to Track Petrol Prices in Odisha?

    There are three options through which the latest petrol price can be tracked. All oil marketing companies offer an SMS service. They have also designed unique mobile applications, which can be downloaded by customers to track the latest price. The mobile application designed by Hindustan Petroleum is called ‘My HPCL’. The mobile application created by Indian Oil is called ‘fuel@OIC’. The mobile application designed by Bharat Petroleum is called ‘SmartDrive.’ Customers can avail the benefit of these services.

    Factors Affecting Petrol Price in Odisha

    Which factors do you think affect the petrol price? Why do petrol prices differ from one state to another? Why do petrol prices change? As we know, the price of petrol in New Delhi is the lowest compared to all Indian cities. It is because of the fact that the state VAT imposed on petrol by the Delhi government is comparatively less. In Odisha, the petrol price is more compared to New Delhi. The higher the state VAT, the higher will be the cost of petrol. The lower the state VAT, the lower will be the petrol price.

    The central excise duty has been recently reduced to Rs.19.48 per litre by the central government on 3 October 2017. After the revision, petrol prices across all Indian states including Odisha were down almost Rs.2 per litre. This is how the revision of the excise duty impacts the petrol price charged to customers. The excise duty and the state VAT are domestically controlled. Another determinant is the cost of crude oil, which cannot be domestically controlled. When the cost price of crude oil falls in global markets, the cost of petrol falls. On the other hand, if the cost of crude oil goes up, the petrol price increases as a result.

    Does GST Impact Petrol Prices in Odisha?

    GST does not impact petrol prices in Odisha. Petrol was priced at Rs.66.77 in October 2017. If GST is levied on petrol, the petrol price will fall down approximately to Rs.45.00 per litre at 28%. Whether or not to bring petrol under the regime of GST is left at the discretion of the central government. The imposition of GST on petrol at the current rate will bring down the petrol rate in Odisha. Eventually, the government stands to lose the major chunk of revenue source.
