How often Diesel Prices are Revised in West Bengal

The daily revision is a new fuel pricing system that began on June 16, 2017, in India. Under the new system, all fuel bunks around the state will change diesel prices on a regular basis. Because all state-run oil marketing companies introduced routine revision, diesel prices have been gradually increasing. Both automatic diesel bunks can change diesel prices on a regular basis. Both non-automated diesel bunks may undergo manual revisions. The below are some of the main features of a standard revision system:

  • Prices will be revised every day at 6:00 a.m.
  • Diesel consumers will follow market patterns.
  • The framework simplifies the estimation of fuel prices.
  • Bunk operators would be able to implement efficient inventory control procedures.
  • The federal government and the states are not allowed to share in the price of oil.

Factors Affecting Diesel Price in West Bengal

The abundance of crude oil has a major effect on the price of gasoline in all parts of the world, including West Bengal. When the supply of oil is smaller than expected, the price will rise. Oil supply levels can fluctuate depending on demand and fabrication. The consistency of the oil is also important. Another factor to remember is the current and potential market for crude. If there is a decrease in oil demand, the diesel price will decline in the domestic market and vice versa.

The oil futures market, fluctuations in the USD/INR conversion rate, political factors, weather conditions, and other factors all influence diesel prices in West Bengal and other states. The price of crude oil will be affected in world markets if oil-producing countries announce a supply cut. As a result, West Bengal’s current diesel levels have been affected. The Factors influencing crude oil prices:

The price of crude oil would go up if:

  • Crude oil demand is on the rise.
  • Unfavourable environmental conditions cause oil production to be halted.
  • The INR is losing ground against the US dollar.

The price of crude oil will fall if:

  • The appetite for crude oil has been consistent.
  • Climate conditions have little impact on oil production operations.
  • The INR is losing support against the US dollar.

State Taxes and Diesel Price in West BengalDiesel Price in West Bengal

The state’s fuel prices are set and revised by oil marketing firms or OMCs. They play a significant role in providing fuel to India’s end consumers. To start with, OMCs borrow crude oil from oil-producing countries. The crude oil will be shipped to refining centres. The refined oil, which is gasoline, is then sold at retail stations around the world. 

Effect of GST on West Bengal Diesel Price

The Goods and Services Levy, as we all know, is essentially an indirect tax that replaces previous taxes. It is one of the most beneficial amendments. Many citizens are unaware that diesel and gasoline are exempt from the GST. As a result, the new diesel rate in West Bengal has little to do with the GST scheme. The addition of diesel will lower fuel prices for end consumers, but it is likely that both the Central Government of India and the State Government of West Bengal will lose money. As a result, diesel is actually exempt from the GST tax scheme.
