Last month, Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a cut in excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per liter, and on diesel by Rs 6 per liter.

On Thursday, the petrol price in Delhi is Rs 96.72 per liter compared to Rs 105.41 per liter, earlier; while the retail price of diesel in the national capital is Rs 89.62 per liter as opposed to Rs 96.67 per liter previously.

The review of petrol and diesel prices in the country is being done by public sector OMCs such as Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL). Petrol and diesel price changes are implemented daily from 6 a.m. The fuel price revision depends on several factors, including international crude oil prices and exchange rates. The price of gasoline and diesel also varies between states, due to local factors such as state taxes, VAT (Value Added Tax), freight charges, among others.

Following the central government’s decision to significantly cut excise duties to lower fuel prices, several state governments have also reduced VAT on petrol and diesel. The state government of Maharashtra reduced the local VAT on petrol by Rs 2.08 per liter and on diesel by Rs 1.44 per liter. The state government of Odisha announced easing of local taxes on petrol and diesel at Rs 2.23 and Rs 1.36 per liter respectively.
