The central government had garnered Rs 4.23 lakh crore in excise duty and VAT collection on petroproducts during the last fiscal year 2019-20, which was 78 per cent of its total excise revenue. The remaining excise duty collection came from crude oil cess and customs; royalties; and CGST.

After the crude oil prices in the international market rolled down to record low due to the low demand during the coronavirus-led global lockdown, the Indian government raised excise duty by a record Rs 10 per litre on petrol and Rs 13 per litre on diesel to garner Rs 1.6 lakh crore additional revenue. With the increase in duties, the government forced the fuel consumers to pay over 250 per cent collectively in excise duty to state and centre. However, at one end, where the government is distributing cash to the poor section of the society, on the other end, citizens are forced to shell out a fortune to buy petrol and diesel.
