Petrol and diesel prices remained unchanged on Saturday, as oil marketing companies stayed away from revising fuel rates for the third day running. This after the Narendra Modi government announced a reduction in the central excise taxes to the tune of Rs 5 for petrol and Rs 10 for diesel. However, despite the excise rate cut, the prices of petrol and diesel continue to remain over the three-figure mark. 

Shortly after the Centre decision, some states, especially BJP-ruled states, went ahead and lowered the Value Added Taxes being levied on fuel. This further lowered the fuel prices. However, states like Kerala and Maharashtra have refused to lower the VAT on fuel citing revenue loss and exchequer constraints.

The Centre's move to cut excise duty on fuel prices is expected to cost the government exchequer around Rs. 1.4 lakh crore annually. Meanwhile, the opposition Congress party has decided to go ahead with its agitation against fuel prices and inflation despite the rate cuts. This is especially after it has emerged that one of the reasons why the BJP's performance took a hit during the recent assembly by-elections was because of the soaring prices of fuel and inflation in the country.
