Share of diesel PVs to go below 25% post BSVI implementation: ICRA 24.5.2018 General News
Share of diesel passenger vehicles (PVs) in the domestic market is expected to go below 25 per cent post implementation of BSVI emission norms from April 2020, according to rating agency ICRA. The share of diesel vehicles which declined to 38 per cent in 2017-18 is expected to fall further to 35-36 per cent in 2018-19 and will eventually go below 25 per cent level post implementation of BSVI norms, the domestic rating agency said in a statement. "Regular increase in the retail price of diesel in small doses every month since January 2013 has significantly narrowed down the retail price gap between petrol and diesel fuels, making cost economics of owning a diesel PV relatively less favourable now than in the past," ICRA Senior Group Vice President Corporate Sector Ratings Subrata Ray said. As there is a high correlation between petrol and diesel price gap, lower fuel price gap has resulted in customer preference shifting away from diesel vehicles, he added.

Punjab fuel pump owners demand reduction in VAT on fuel 23.5.2018 General News
Fuel pump owners in Punjab today sought reduction in taxes on petrol and diesel, alleging that higher retail prices in the state have led to smuggling of fuel from Chandigarh, where rates are comparatively lower. Pump owners further said they are suffering losses as vehicles and industries that require fuel cross over to Chandigarh-based fuel pumps to meet their petrol and diesel requirements. Petrol price in Punjab has touched Rs 82.37 per litre which is around Rs 8 per litre costlier than what is in Chandigarh. Similarly, diesel price, which is ruling at Rs 68.70 a litre in Punjab, is over Rs 2 per litre costlier than that in Chandigarh. "With the price of fuel soaring frequently, the business of petroleum products has been affected adversely," said Ashwinder Mongia, member of Petrol Pump Dealers' Association of Punjab, here. "With the record rise in retail prices, the rampant smuggling of fuel is taking place. Be it car owners or industry which requires fuel, all of them have ...
