Whereas in Mumbai, petrol is available at Rs 106.31 and diesel at Rs 94.27 per litre. While petrol in Kolkata is Rs 106.03 and diesel is Rs 92.76 per litre.

As mentioned earlier, the petrol and diesel prices are revised daily at 6 am. The prices are decided by the oil marketing companies (OMCs) – Bharat Petroleum, Hindustan Petroleum, Indian Oil. The Centre controls fuel prices through excise duty, base and cap prices at which dealers and oil companies deal with each other.

The fuel prices in India are not under goods and service tax. While the Centre collects excise duty, the state governments collect VAT. Since VAT is different for each state, hence the pricing.

Last year, the Narendra Modi government cut central excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre, resulting in reduction of price of petrol by Rs 9.5 per litre and of diesel by Rs 7 per litre.

Meanwhile, on the international front, the oil prices rose for a fourth consecutive session in early trading on Tuesday, as weak U.S. shale production stoked further concerns about a supply deficit stemming from extended production cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures rose 90 cents, or 1%, to $92.38 by 0018 GMT, having hit a 10-month high on Monday, while global oil benchmark Brent crude futures rose 27 cents, or 0.3%, to $94.70 per barrel.

India imports about 85% of its oil needs and so domestic pump rates are dependent on international prices, as denominated by the Indian basket of crude oil.
