This is how the rate of petrol and diesel increases

After adding excise duty, dealer commission and other things to the price of petrol and diesel, its price almost doubles. If excluding the excise duty of the Central Government and the VAT of the State Governments, then the rate of diesel and petrol would be around 27 rupees a liter, but both the Central or the State Government, can not remove the tax at any cost. Because a large part of the revenue comes from here. This money leads to growth. Explain that Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday that the share of central government excise in the price of petrol in Delhi is Rs 32.98. At the same time, the share of sales tax or value added tax (VAT) of the state government is Rs 19.55.
