Petrol price has crossed 100 for a litre milestone states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Ladakh, Bihar, Punjab and Sikkim. Some other states too are about to join the list if upward revision goes like this.

Incessant price hikes started impacting the motor fuel rates since it started in February this year. Apart from the 18-days hiatus during the state assembly elections, fuel prices have majorly revised upward. The pricing components for both the motor fuels include excise duty, freight charges, variable VAT amount across states, dealer commission etc.

Despite demand from various sectors to reduce excise duty, the central government remained adamant about continuing with the current rate of tax. This has impacted not only motorists, but non motorists as well.
