Elements Impacting Petrol Prices in Chhattisgarh

Several factors influence the petrol rate in Chhattisgarh and in other cities of India.

  • External Factors: The primary factor to influence the petrol price is the global crude oil price. India depends on nearly 70% of crude oil from oil-producing countries. The price for a barrel of crude oil is dynamic in nature and fluctuates based on production cuts, shortage in supply, geopolitical tensions or fluctuations in the demand. The second external factor is the exchange rate of the US dollar. Since trading of crude oil in the global market happens in US dollars, any fluctuations in the value of the US dollar impacts the final selling price of petrol in Chhattisgarh.
  • Internal Factors: Internal or domestic factors include taxes levied by the government, operating costs and dealer commission. Tax on petrol is the biggest component in the petrol price. While the Centre levies excise duty at Rs.19.48 per litre on petrol, Chhattisgarh charges Value Added Tax (VAT) at 27.02%. Any revision in the tax rates impacts the petrol price in Chhattisgarh and in cities across India. Additionally, OMCs add dealer commission to the final selling price of fuel in the country.

That said, if petrol comes under the GST, price for a litre of petrol will reduce significantly.

Diesel Rate vs. Petrol Rates in Chhattisgarh

Currently, petrol attracts excise duty of Rs.19.48 per litre, while diesel is charged Rs.15.33. Chhattisgarh levies VAT at 27.02% and 25.81% on petrol and diesel respectively.
