Why are petrol and diesel expensive in India?

There are two main reasons behind the inflation of oil. First crude oil and second tax. In India, the central government and state governments charge heavy taxes on petrol and diesel. Including VAT and excise duty, the tax is more than 60 percent. Apart from this, in most South Asian countries including Pakistan and Bangladesh, there is a tax of 45 to 60 percent on petrol and diesel, due to which the prices here have increased continuously in a few days.

Government should review the tax on fuel

The SBI report has advised the government to review the taxes on fuel. The reason for this has been told that 572 million people of the country are still associated with the unorganized economy. If we consider five people in a family, then the number of tax payers comes to about 114 crores, which is equal to the tax payers in the country. Adjusting for the consumption of people below the poverty line, these 114 million tax paying households contribute 65% of private final consumption expenditure to 8.5% of the population. In such a situation, if the government reviews the taxes on fuel, then this large population will get the benefit.

Prices will further bother consumers

The price of the Indian basket of crude, representing the average of Oman, Dubai and Brent, fell to $19.90 in April last year during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic. This gave the central government an opportunity to sharply increase taxes on petrol and diesel, making excise duty one of the major contributors to the exchequer in FY21. Unless the tax is cut, any increase in oil prices will further trouble the consumers.
