    Fuel Pricing mechanism in Siliguri

    Today, India uses dynamic fuel pricing to revise fuel prices. This is a fuel pricing mechanism where the revision of fuel rates is done on a daily basis and this new mechanism was deployed on 16 June 2017. Like the earlier fortnightly-based revision, even this mechanism takes into account the exchange rate of the INR against the USD and the cost of crude oil in overseas markets. Any variations in these two price determinants shall be immediately transmitted to fuel customer in all parts of the country, including Siliguri.

    Petrol pumps can be of two types:

    1) Automated and 2) Non-Automated. Since dynamic fuel pricing encourages the drive of automation, all automated petrol outlets can automatically declare the current petrol price in Siliguri whereas non-automated petrol pumps have to do it manually. Once the revision is done at 6:00 A.M., the latest price shall be instantly uploaded on the websites of oil marketing companies for the public to refer. Moreover, all petrol stations in the city shall exhibit the latest petrol price.

    • Unlike earlier, OMCs will not face the issue of inventory management.
    • Operational overheads can be lessened.

    • Working capital, the net difference between current assets and current liabilities, can be easily managed.
    • Fuel revision is easier for oil marketing companies, including Hindustan Petroleum, Bharat Petroleum and Indian Oil.

    Why does the Petrol Rate in Siliguri change every day?

    The dynamic fuel pricing method makes the petrol price to change in the city every day. The price goes up when the INR drops against the USD and falls down when the USD drops against the INR. Similarly, the price increases when the cost price of unrefined oil hikes internationally and diminishes when the buying price of unrefined oil drops globally. Taxes have the similar effect on fuel prices. When the central and state governments decay the tax on petrol, the retail selling price of petrol in the city will fall. For instance, when the central excise duty reduced to Rs.19.48 a litre on 3 October 2017, the petrol price in Siliguri was down by Rs.2.00 per litre.

    • The exchange rate is a key factor and is impacted by interest rates, the inflation rate, exports and imports and the overall performance of an economy.
    • Similarly, the buying cost of crude oil is influenced by transnational supplies and demands, the major political moves in oil-producing nations, seasonal circumstances and climate reports.
