Reason behind the costlier petrol price in Assam

Fuel has become costlier in India when compared with neighbouring countries off lately.

Previously the government of India subsidized the fuel prices in sync with global market prices. But now, the government has stopped subsidizing the petrol prices and the rates are in sync with the global crude oil prices.

Apart from this the addition of excise duty on petrol has also inflated the price of petrol in the country. Adding additional woes to the existing situation, each and every state in the country levies separate state based value-added tax on petrol and it is 30.85% in the state of Assam. The VAT will be added to the petrol rates before arriving at the final value. All these have to be borne by the customer and hence the petrol price has rallied sharply over the last few months in India.

How can the consumers in Assam check the petrol prices?

There are various options for the petrol buyers to check its prices in a various number of ways. The easiest way is to send an SMS to the respective state-based oil marketing companies in the following form. In the case of Hindustan Petroleum (HP) send an SMS to HPPRICE followed by their DEALER CODE and send it to 9222201122.


In case of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) by sending as SMS to RSP followed by the respective DEALER CODE and send it to 9224992249.

Apart from this the customer can also log into the website of the oil marketing company and check the petrol rates which are revised on a regular basis starting at 6 am in the morning in accordance with the global crude prices.
