Petrol prices rise by Rs 2.34 per liter in eight days
For eight consecutive days, prices for petrol have increased by Rs 2.34 per liter and diesel by Rs 2.57. The continuous rise in prices has been criticized by opposition parties, including the Congress, which have demanded immediate cuts in taxes to reduce the burden on the common man. Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan told Parliament last week that the government was not considering a reduction in excise duty to reduce prices to a record high. Central and state taxes make up 60 percent of the retail sales price for petrol and 54 percent for diesel. The central government charges Rs 32.90 on excise duty on petrol and Rs 31.80 per liter on diesel.
Rise in crude oil due to increase in demand
Brent crude oil has reached a psychological level of $ 63.50 per barrel in the international market due to reduced supply by OPEC countries and increased demand globally. According to Anuj Gupta, vice president (commodities and research), Angel Broking, the price of crude oil has risen by about 20% since January 1. Crude oil can go up to $ 75 per barrel by April. This will further increase the price of LPG including petrol and diesel in the Indian market. At the same time, oil companies raised the price of aviation turbine fuel (ATF) by Rs 1,942.5 per kl or 3.6 per cent to Rs 55,737.91 per kl in the national capital. Petrol and diesel prices are revised on a daily basis, LPG and ATF rates are revised on the 16th and every month.
