windfall tax: Centre cuts windfall tax on petroleum crude, diesel


India has cut the windfall tax on diesel and crude oil on Monday, according to a government notification.

The government cut the windfall tax on crude oil to Rs 1,300 ($15.64) a tonne from Rs 5,000 a tonne, while cutting the diesel windfall tax to Rs 0.5 per litre from Rs 1 per litre, the notification said.

The windfall tax on aviation turbine fuel has been hiked to 1 rupee/litre from zero.

India imposed a windfall tax on crude oil producers in July 2022 and extended the levy on exports of gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel as private refiners wanted to sell fuel overseas to make gains from robust refining margins instead of selling locally.
