On the eve of Diwali, the central government announced an excise duty cut on petrol by 5 per litre and 10 per litre for diesel. Subsequently, several state governments and union territories too announced VAT rate cuts. These combined rate cuts reduced the price of petrol and diesel significantly across a major part of the country, bringing down the burden on common people.

The total tax incidence on petrol has come down to 50 per cent after the excise duty cut by the central government, while diesel too has witnessed tax incidence reduction to 40 per cent.
