    Petrol Price in Surat

    Petrol is a basic commodity used for transportation. Unfortunately, it cannot be produced indigenously because of shortages in crude oil resources. India relies on other countries and thus, petrol is turning out to be a costlier fuel. If you are a resident of Surat, a city in Gujarat, have you checked the latest fuel price? On 28 May 2018, Indian Oil Company offered a price tag of Rs.77.35 per litre. There shall be a minute fluctuation in the prices offered at HPCL and BPCL because of brand differences.

    India has several states. Each state prices petrol differently. The average petrol price offered in the state of Gujarat is lower compared to Delhi. Likewise, the average petrol rate in Tamil Nadu is lower compared to Maharashtra. VAT makes the fuel rate vary from locality to locality. Each state has different regulations with regard to the execution of VAT on petrol. According to Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC), on petrol, VAT was collected at 25.44%, 27%, 28.31% and 25.29% in Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu respectively.

You can see a price variation every day because of the introduction of dynamic fuel pricing in our country.

For instance, if there is a fall in crude oil rates today, fuel rates will be adjusted accordingly tomorrow.

    Dynamic fuel pricing is useful to:

    • Solve the existing problems and make fuel pricing transparent
    • Reduce the quantum of working capital needed to maintain day-to-day business activities
    • Fully computerised oil stations to minimise time required to revise fuel prices regularly
    • Interlink our fuel industry to overseas crude oil markets

    Computation of retail selling price of petrol in Surat

    Petrol price in Surat = excise duty + VAT + crude oil expenses + commission

    The Central Government collects excise duty on petrol and diesel. As of early May 2018, excise duty on petrol was Rs.19.48 per litre. On diesel, it was Rs.15.33 per litre. The government will impose excise duty universally. It can be changed based on current circumstances. We have discussed about Value-added Tax (VAT) in the previous section.

    Crude oil is priced in international markets. Moreover, the crude oil produced in India is sold at international prices. The pricing of crude oil depends on many elements such as political conditions, production cuts, weather reports, etc. On 20 May 2018, the cost of a barrel of crude oil was $73. When converted into Indian rupees, the cost of a litre of crude oil worked out to be Rs.31.

    Factors Impacting Fuel Prices in Surat

    Opposition party leaders have started criticising the Central Government that has not declined excise duty recently. If the government decides to reduce excise duty, fuel rates in Surat will be reset accordingly. To make it clear, if the government drops excise duty by Rs.2 per litre, petrol price will fall by Rs.2 per litre. VAT was decreased in October 2017 in Gujarat. Put simply, variations in VAT and excise duty will directly affect fuel rates.

    Crude oil is bought from overseas markets. It has to be priced in dollars. Therefore, the exchange rate is taken into consideration. The dollar and petrol rates have an inverse relationship. If the USD/INR exchange rate drops, fuel rates will proportionally increase. On the flipside, if the USD/INR exchange rate appreciates, oil marketing companies will decrease fuel rates. Crude oil prices also impact directly. If WTI and Brent crude oil prices drop, fuel rates will drop. If Brent and WTI crude oil prices increase, fuel rates are increased by fuel companies.

    Impact of GST on Current Petrol Price in Surat

    Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a multi-phase indirect tax, which was implemented in 2017. It is not applicable to petrol and diesel. So, the pricing of petrol is not affected by GST in India. Other commodities have been taxed at 18%, 12%, 5% and 28% respectively. Fuel consumers will pay excise duty and VAT currently. If the GST Committee accepts the proposal of implementing GST on petrol, the current tax slabs have to be replaced by GST. In that case, petrol rates in Surat will be cheaper. Thus, the government will incur losses.

This has happened in the state of Odisha which is located in the eastern part of the country. As of Sunday, every litre of petrol cost Rs.80.57 in the state, Rs.0.12 less than the price of diesel.

The state government has blamed the central government for high diesel prices.

He feared that the rates of essential commodities might shoot up in light of the recent development. The minister went on to allege that the government might have some tactical understanding with the state-owned oil companies.
