Dehradun is situated in the state of Uttarakhand in India. It is located in
North India and spans an area of over 300 square kilometres. This city is
one of the “counter magnets” of the National Capital Region. Dehradun is in
the Doon Valley at the foothills of the Himalayas located between the river
Ganges on the East and the river Yamuna on the West.
As of 2011, there were said to be 578,420 people residing in the city of
Dehradun. It is a very scenic land with a mild climate. It is being
developed as an alternative centre of growth and as a smart city to reduce
the migration and the sudden increase in population in Delhi.
The cost of fuel in Dehradun has increased drastically. The price of petrol
is now around Rs.75.30 per litre which is lesser than its record high of
Rs.83.79 on the 1st of October 2018.
There are a few reasons behind the rise of fuel prices in Dehradun. They
As fuel is a non-renewable resource , this valuable resource is
gradually depleting with the massive consumption of the same due to
the rise in population and excessive use of transportation.
The prices of crude oil have increased.
High excise duty has been charged on transportation of fuel in the
The value of the Indian rupee has fallen against the dollar
Pricing for any product is determined by two factors, which are, demand and
supply. However, these are not the only two factors that impact the price
of petrol. Here are the other factors that impact the price of petrol in
The retail selling price (RSP) – The RSP of petrol is calculated
based on the import parity and the export parity. In simple terms,
this means that the retail price, the price per litre you pay to
purchase petrol is estimated by the ratio of crude oil imported to
that of crude oil exported. Currently the ratio stands at 80:20
this means that 80% is import parity and 20% is export parity.
Import Parity Price (IPP) – The IPP is the price that the importers
of crude oil have to pay for containing crude oil in their depots.
It consists of the price of crude oil, the ocean freight, shipping
insurance, custom duties, and dock charges. It is also inclusive of
transportation from the dock to the depot.
Export Parity Price (EPP) – The EPP is the price that oil companies
get for petroleum products. It includes the free on boarding price
which consists of ocean freight, freight insurance, custom duties,
and dock charges and also the advance license benefit for duty free
import of crude oil.
Critics argue against this method stating that since the de-control of
petrol price in 2010, the prices should be based on market forces of demand
and supply as well as pricing structure of those involved in the
manufacturing of petrol. This is inclusive of refineries, petrol retailers,
logistics companies, and others. The pricing according to those against the
parity system should be based on cost plus profit margin.
There are multiple factors which affect the petrol prices in Dehradun. The
key factors which play a role in the petrol pricing are:
Freight costs– The transportation costs in terms of logistics, toll, labour cost for
transportation of raw materials from overseas dealers to refineries and
from refineries to petrol pumps have an impact on the pricing of the final
Custom duty– All commodities that are imported into India are liable to custom duty.
The duty charged on crude oil is 15.5%. This charge is payable to the
customs authority for importing foreign products into India.
Import charges– Import charges refers to insurance charges, port charges and ocean
losses. Insurance premium paid to the insurer for risk mitigation of the
consignment is called as insurance charges. Port charges are the temporary
usage of dock for stocking inventory and using the transport vehicles for
moving consignment. Ocean losses can be caused by spillage or pilferage of
barrels as they are shipped across from Gulf nations. There is a reserve
made to adjust such losses.
Excise duty and VAT– The Central Government excise duty is constant across all States, hence,
does not have any specific impact on individual State or city. The excise
duty is applied at Rs. 19.48 per litre. On diesel, it was Rs.15.33 per
Dealer commission- The petrol and diesel dealers charge a commission of 7% on a litre of
petrol. This is very dependent on the petrol price in the city, within the
city and across OMCs the dealer commission would be similar, but there
could be change across cities and States within India.
Petrol price in Dehradun as compared to other cities.
The price of petrol in Dehradun is high as compared to other major Indian
cities. Mumbai has the highest per litre price of petrol, followed closely
by Delhi. Chandigarh claims to have the lowest per litre price of petrol.
How frequently are Petrol Prices in Dehradun Computed?
India followed the fortnightly model of petrol price computation which is
once in 14 days. The factors that make up the price of petrol were added up
to arrive at the RSP. Since 2016 the fortnightly model has been abandoned
in favour of the new dynamic model under which the computation is done on a
daily basis. The newly computed price is posted on the website of the
various OMCs every day at 6 AM.
This model has the benefit of passing on fluctuations in the price of crude
oil as well as currency rates to the consumer immediately. It also brings
transparency into the pricing and discourages malpractices such as
speculation and hoarding. The following channels are available to learn the
current day price of petrol.
1) Mobile Application
Most OMCs have their own mobile app which you can download on your Android,
iOS, or Windows phone and check the price in the app.
2) SMS Services
In reply to an SMS the OMCs will send you the daily price of petrol as per
their computation. Type in RSP followed by the dealer code to know the
price of a specific dealer.
3) Online Portals
Every oil company displays the price of petrol on their website every day
at 6 AM. Most websites also show historical rates, graphs, trends and more.
Simply visit the respective website and explore to know the price of petrol
Note: Petrol prices may vary slightly from company to company and dealer to
dealer because of varying commissions and profit margins.
The dynamic fuel pricing method has certain distinct advantages –
The model passes on any advantage of reduction in the price of
crude oil to the end user immediately.
The model brings total transparency in the pricing of petrol and
The model discourages illegal practices such as hoarding and hidden
It has curbed the speculation with respect to oil and petrol
The new dynamic model brings relief to the oil companies as the
burden of the boom in price of crude oil is immediately passed on
to the consumer.
As of today, fuel and fuel-based products are not taxed as per GST rates.
Experts state that existing taxes one of the main reasons why petrol prices
are so high in Dehradun. Even though the Government has slashed the excise
duty on petrol according to the Budget 2018, there has been no reduction in
the petrol prices. This is also attributable to the introduction of Rs. 8
per litre as Road Cess.
Therefore, there is increased clamour for inclusion of fuel prices under
the GST. However, according to a Government source, fuel and fuel-based
products may be partially included under the GST. As a result of which the
highest slab of GST at 28% and state-applicable VAT, both may be levied on
petrol, making it even more costly. Experts state that this is how GST is
levied on petrol in other parts of the world as well. This is a political
call and the Centre and State Government must unanimously decide on the
best course of action. We can only anticipate reduction in petrol prices in
While the petrol prices in Dehradun stands at Rs 75.30 per litre, the
diesel price in Dehradun stands at Rs. 69.83 per litre. So, both petrol and
diesel prices have been moving upwards.
Cashbacks on fuel cards
Some credit cards and debit cards can help with the increase of fuel
prices. They can offer cashbacks of up to 5% at leading fuel stations as
well as fuel surcharge waivers. The cashbacks on credit/ debit card on fuel
purchase gained popularity after the demonetization. These specialised
credit cards are called fuel cards and they are aimed to help you save
money every time you refill your vehicle at the fuel station.
There are many banks that offer co-branded fuel credit cards in
collaboration with oil companies. The benefits that you receive on your
fuel purchase can be in the form of reward points, cashbacks, discount or a
combination of all three. A few examples of fuel cards in India are ICICI
Bank HPCL Credit Card, BPCL SBI Credit card, Standard Chartered Super Value
Titanium Credit Card and HDFC All Miles Credit Card.
There are many ways in which you can save petrol costs:

network of busses and trains that connect from one city to another and one
state to another. Using these facilities is much cheaper than using your
own vehicle. It is also less exhausting.
Electric Cars: Electric cars are now a reality in India. It is easy to own and with
plans to build recharge stations across locations, it will be convenient to

km on a diesel or petrol car.
