The petrol and diesel rates remained unchanged on Wednesday. Fuel prices in India are revised daily at 6 am after being decided by top oil companies.

The Central government regulates fuel prices through excise duty, base prices and cap prices.

The fuel prices in India are not under goods and service tax. While the Centre collects excise duty, the state governments collect VAT. Since VAT is different for each state, hence the pricing. Rajasthan levies the highest VAT in the country, followed by Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.
