Petrol Price in Trivandrum

The Trivandrum metropolitan city is the capital city of Kerala and  nation's main hub for IT sector.

 The city contributes largely over 50 percent of software exports from the state. Residence to plenty of temples and educational facilities, in the recent past the population of the city has grown massively. Most of the public transport network system is operated by both state-owned and private buses in the city. Auto rickshaws and taxi cabs are also large tourist transportations. But two-wheelers and four-wheelers have now become a major transportation automobile in the city. With the rising population and also means of transport Trivandrum is relying on fuel to help its economy and transportation facility. In Trivandrum most of the fuel stations are operated by State-owned oil marketing firms such as Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum. The price of petrol in Trivandrum is modified regularly and it's crucial to recognise how the price of petrol is calculated. The analysis below offers insights into the different factors that affect the city’s petrol price. 

Modification in the price of International Crude Oil: As discussed, India buys crude oil from oil-producing countries and consequently any changes in the cost of crude oil on the international market have an influence on the petrol price of Trivandrum. The adjustment in global crude oil occurs when there are huge cuts in production, supply shortages etc. For instance, when there is a spike in availability of crude oil, there may be a case of a supply shortage, so Oil-Marketing Companies (OMCs) will also have to pay a higher price to buy the unrefined oil, which increases the price of petrol in Trivandrum. 

Rupees and Dollar Exchange Rate: As we know OMCs acquire crude oil in US dollars, any rise or contraction of the value of the dollar affects the price of the petrol. Any gratitude of the dollar value will increase the petrol price in Trivandrum as well as in other cities in a proportionate way.

Applicable tax: Some other significant factor that influences the price of petrol is the taxation. Though excise duty is charged by the central government, the states levy Value Added Tax (VAT) on fuel including petroleum products. Any adjustment in taxes would impact the price of fuel in the region. 

Dealer Commission and profits: OMCs purchase and refine these firms are adding their profitability along with other production costs and selling it to dealers around the nation. Dealers or holders of gas stations, distribute and operate the fuel station keeps a margin before supplying the product to the end user. 

Under the existing 'dynamic fuel pricing' system, the petrol price in Trivandrum is modified. Earlier, petrol prices were updated every fortnight; indeed, this method of pricing did not encourage OMCs to adjust the price in accordance with any adjustments in the price of crude oil. Thus, under the latest pricing system, the petrol price at Trivandrum is updated regularly. This helps the OMCs to overcome any adjustments in the price of international crude oil.  The existing price of petrol in Trivandrum is determined by the price of crude oil of the previous day and the exchange rate of the US dollar. Petrol rates are updated at 6 a.m. every day.

How petrol price is determined in Trivandrum?

Crude oil rates, the cost of the refinery, the distributor's commission, the net profit of the OMCs, the state VAT imposed on petrol and the excise duty imposed on petrol are some of the main components which determine the retail selling price (RSP) of petrol in Trivandrum. Crude oil is traded globally in US dollar. Oil prices are influenced by international supplies and services, major countries' supply and demand, seasonal fluctuations, environmental factors, and the exchange rate of the USD against Indian Rupee. Domestically, the expense of refineries vary, and the expense of refining crude oil into petrol through oil processing corporations. A certain amount of the net profit margin on a litre of petrol supplied to retail suppliers is then introduced by Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs). The rates charged to retail petrol dealers are then imposed by both the state and central governments. In all regions of India including Trivandrum, the central excise duty tends to be the same, primarily in relation to the pricing model of petrol and the State Value Added Tax (VAT) framework for petroleum products differs among all the states. The revenue of the dealer, which is determined by the distance between the supply points and retail outlets, is another factor that slightly vary from dealer to dealer in Trivandrum and other metro areas. For petrol and diesel, as well as the location of the filling stations, the dealer's commission differs.

Petrol and diesel tend to receive excise duty from the Centre and VAT from the State as duties.

The GST is, however, not applicable to petrol.
