Additionally, diesel price of Chandigarh depends on various factors. Diesel rate varies from state to state in India various charges and applied tax.   

What Do You Mean By Dynamic Fuel Pricing Mechanism?

On June 16, 2017, the OMCs (Oil Marketing Companies) of the public sector launched the "dynamic fuel pricing" mechanism to change fuel prices on a daily basis based on market conditions and several other factors. Petrol and diesel rates were updated on the first and sixteenth days of each month before this mechanism was implemented. That's why it was called "fortnight fuel pricing." However, it had a range of drawbacks, and to address them the method of dynamic pricing was implemented. Diesel, unlike petrol, is utilized not only for transportation but also for construction processes as well. Fuel plays a key role in any nation's financial sustainability. The Dynamic Fuel Pricing System (DFPS) is a mechanism that regulates fuel prices on a regular basis in line with exchange rates and unrefined or crude oil rates. At 6:00 a.m every day, the price change takes place. It is also highly important to check the price of diesel before you fuel your automobile. Since 16 June 2017, in Chandigarh, all diesel dealers have been pursuing this new fuel pricing structure. After running a 40-day pilot in five cities in India, the dynamic fuel pricing system was introduced in India. As governments are unable to access oil marketing companies (OMCs), hence fuel price stability is provided by the mechanism. It will be convenient to report fluctuations in crude oil prices and the INR / USD exchange rate to end-users under this mechanism. Dealers are able to handle their stocks and working expenses quickly. Due to the process of dynamic fuel pricing, the integration of customers with market dynamics continues.     

What makes diesel rates to be revised regularly in Chandigarh?

Under the 'Dynamic Fuel Pricing' method, diesel rates are updated in Chandigarh and in other cities across India. State-owned oil firms, such as Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum, include the international crude oil price of the preceding day and the US dollar exchange rate retail selling price (RSP) of diesel or petrol. In Chandigarh, the diesel price is updated every day at 6 a.m. IST, focused on the process of dynamic fuel pricing. India used to adjust or modify fuel prices every fortnight prior to the regular revision in diesel prices. Oil companies, nevertheless, had to queue a fortnight to raise or decline the price of diesel, which resulted to liabilities. Therefore, on 16 June 2017, the fortnightly approach was discontinued and the dynamic fuel pricing system was adopted. Through the regular revision of diesel rates, oil firms is effectively able to pass on to consumers the downturn or increase of crude oil costs. Under the current trading framework, both consumers and oil companies can take advantage of the current global price of crude oil. 

Factors influencing the diesel rates in Chandigarh

Now since we know that diesel rates are changed on a regular basis, let's discuss what variables decide the price change of diesel. More than 70% of India's crude oil is imported from oil-producing countries, making it a vital and costly commodity throughout India. The price of crude oil constitutes the main or base rate of the price of diesel in India. 

Currency exchange rate- Crude oil trade exists in US dollars, and is competitive in nature. The cost of purchasing crude oil climbs as the US dollar increases over the Indian Rupee, and vice versa. Hence, one of the factors affecting the regular adjustment of diesel prices in India is the exchange rate of the US dollar.

International Crude Oil Price- Diesel is acquired in its crude nature, which is then processed in the country and marketed. Owing to the rise or decline in crude oil demand, the global crude oil price is volatile in nature as it increases. It's often affected by a supply deficit, international conflicts, or rising demand.

Excise Duty & Value Added Tax (VAT) on Diesel- Two separate taxes are, in existence, the Central Excise Duty (levied by the central government) and the VAT (Value Added Tax). These taxes are added to the price set to the diesel bunker's distributor. And the price after the imposition of the Central Excise and VAT, which varies from region to region, relates to the dealers' commission.

Margin of oil companies and dealer’s commission- Crude or unrefined oil is imported from countries that manufacture oil and is then processed and delivered to the country's retail stores. Therefore, oil companies add their net profit and other operating expenses into the price of diesel before it is distributed at a filling station. Even, to the final selling price of diesel, dealer commission (commission to fuel station owners) is related.
