Petrol, diesel prices in India depend on international rates
As India depends on the import of fuel, the prices of petrol and diesel in the country are influenced by international rates.
However, the central government’s excise duty and the state government’s VAT are the major portions of the fuel prices.
The prices of petrol and diesel are not the same across the country as state governments levy different rates of VAT.
Taking all these into consideration, oil companies review and revise the rates of petrol and diesel on a daily basis. The new prices become effective from 6 a.m.
