The excise duty cut by the Centre on November 3 was the first such exercise since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Retail prices of petrol and diesel have remained unchanged since first week November, after a decrease in excise duty by Rs 5 per litre and Rs 10 a litre respectively was announced. Decrease in prices consequent to VAT rate revision by 27 States/UTs have provided further relief to consumers. That excise cut and VAT reduction helped bring down fuel prices from record highs.
