Latest Fuel Price Hike Update

Latest Fuel Price Hike UpdateThe prices are shocking as diesel is called the backbone of Indian transport industry and the government is not making any excise cut to keep these under control. Till end 2016, the drop in petrol and diesel price (parallel to international crude oil pricing) was not passed to the public as adding revenue became the primary purpose of government.

They reduced the excise duty to introduce a flat road cess of INR 8 per liter of fuel, making things even worse for the public. VAT, excise, and other additional charges result in more than 100% tax on petrol and around 66% on diesel in India. If placed under GST, the tax on fuel will drop by around 72% for petrol and 38% for diesel, keeping no extra cess over the standard 28% slab.
