Fuel prices come down as Centre slashes excise duty

Earlier in October, the Central government slashed excise duty on petrol and diesel prices by Rs 5 and Rs 10 as a Diwali gift to citizens further providing a major relief to those suffering from inflation and increasing fuel costs. Following this, around 24 states and UTs reduced their VAT rates in various proportions leading to a reduction in petrol and diesel prices in many cities. However, there are still other states which have not yet announced any reduction.

OMCs such as Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum alter fuel prices depending on international prices and overseas stock exchanges. Petrol and diesel costs differ from state to state and city to city, depending on the impact of local levies such as value-added tax (VAT) and freight charges.
