The cost of premium petrol has reached Rs 101.80 per litre with a hike of 38 paise in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan. The petrol price has increased to reach Rs 93.86 per litre and diesel price to Rs 85.94 per litre in capital, Jaipur.
Across Rajasthan, the price of petrol is above Rs 93 and diesel more than Rs 85 per litre.
Prices of petrol and diesel across the country are market-determined and attract uniform central excise duty. But, their prices differ from state to state because of the wide variations in the local levies or value-added tax (VAT).
The VAT on diesel prices is 28 percent whereas VAT on petrol was in access of 38 percent, according to an official notification released by the Rajasthan government in May 2020.
