Delhi Cabinet has decided to reduce VAT on diesel from 30% to 16.75%. This will reduce the price of diesel in Delhi to Rs 73.64. Over the last few weeks, petrol and diesel prices have zoomed up across the country. The situation is such that for the first time, the price of diesel is more than that of petrol at several places including the capital. The current price of petrol in Delhi is Rs 80.4 per litre, about a rupee and a half lower than diesel.
On June 1, 2020, the price of diesel in the capital was Rs 69. By the month end, it had zoomed up to Rs 80. This was the time when petrol and diesel saw a record streak of price rise on a daily basis.
Prior to June 7, oil companies had not revised petrol and diesel prices for 82 days as they adjusted a record increase in excise duty by the government against the fall in rates warranted due to international oil prices slumping to a two-year low.
