Why are petrol and diesel so expensive in India?
Petrol-diesel is not expensive in our country but it becomes very expensive after the government imposes taxes. In our country, the base price of petrol and diesel is still around Rs 33. But the central and state governments impose tax on it and reach it at 100 rupees.
On this, the central government is charging excise duty of Rs 33. After this, the state governments charge VAT and cess on their own, after which their price has increased up to 3 times from the base price. Talking about Pakistan, there is a total tax of Rs 21.04 per liter on petrol. Whereas in India, more than 54 rupees of tax is levied.
