Petrol and diesel prices are quietly impacting consumers' pockets

Petrol Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, on Wednesday, asked the government to stop the fuel price from being reviewed on daily basis, among the questions arising with the increase in petrol prices by about 7.3 rupees per liter since July. At the same time, the direct impact of rising petrol-diesel prices is continuously appearing on the consumer's pocket. Keep in mind that in most states, the price of petrol has crossed Rs 70, whereas the price of diesel is around 60 rupees per liter.

In fact, from June 16 this year, the system of daily dynamical pricing has been implemented in the country for petrol and diesel prices. After the volatility in fuel prices since then, petrol in Delhi reached Rs 70.38 and diesel at Rs 58.72 per liter on September 13, 2017. Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, while criticizing for the increase in fuel prices, said that after the review of the price on daily basis on June 16, the shortfall in prices was ignored for a fortnight and only temporarily rising prices It is being raised loudly. The country caters to 80% of its needs with imports and hence the domestic fuel rates have been linked to the price fluctuations in the international market since 2002.

At the same time, the price of petrol and diesel has attracted the attention of the common man in the country even after the constant decline in crude oil prices. Significantly, when the Modi government took oath, on May 26, the price of crude oil was 6330.65 rupees per barrel, while the rupee value of rupees was 58.59 rupees per dollar. However, on September 11, 2017, the price of crude oil fell nearly halfway to Rs 3368.39 per barrel, while the dollar cost of rupees was 63.89 per dollar.

It is natural to get such a question that why the prices of petrol and diesel have not been reduced when the price of crude oil has nearly halved in the government's till date. It is known that on June 7, 2014, petrol in Delhi was priced at Rs 71.51 and diesel was Rs 57.28 per liter. On the same day, daily diematic pricing was imposed on 109 petrol pumps in Puducherry, Visakhapatnam, Udaipur, Jamshedpur and Chandigarh from 1st May. This arrangement was implemented from all over the country on June 16. Under this, the prices of petrol and diesel are changed every morning at 6 a.m.

On the other hand, petrol-diesel has been excluded from the GST by the new tax system implemented from July 1 this year and there are various tax rates of central and state governments. Now, if the central taxes are talked of, according to official data, the increase in excise duty on diesel has increased by 380 per cent and on petrol 120 per cent since the arrival of the BJP Government at the Center. Meanwhile, the central government has increased the earnings of this item more than three times. Meanwhile, Sales Tax and VAT being levied by the State Governments have also expanded.

According to information provided by the Minister of Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on March 27, 2017 in the Lok Sabha, in April 2014, 10 states had kept VAT more than 20 per cent on diesel, but in August 2017 the number of such states increased to 15.
