Petrol Price In Meghalaya

Petrol is one of the primary fuels powering our vehicles on Indian roads. Meghalaya, often referred to as the abode of clouds, is hilly terrain. As a state with heavily forested areas, heavy rainfalls, and rich biodiversity, it attracts a lot of tourism. As a matter of fact, in 2019, tourist numbers stood at 0.03 million and 1.25 million, respectively for foreign and domestic travellers.


For the same reason, the state of Meghalaya is also a major supplier of very rich minerals like limestone, coal, briquettes, quartz, granite, industrial clay, uranium etc. There is a lot of activity in the state for industries that are rooted in farming products like agriculture and food processing, floriculture, horticulture, handicrafts and sericulture industries. We also see a considerable number of mineral-based or tech-based industries like mining, cement, and hydroelectric power.


Transportation is therefore a big part of the state’s economic & industrial life. And that signifies the importance of fuel prices. Let’s have a look at the petrol price in Meghalaya today.

Now, let’s explore the factors that influence petrol prices in detail:

Crude oil

Crude Oil is the main component that goes into petrol. It’s a valuable resource, with reportedly only 1.5 trillion barrels of oil reserves left inside the earth’s ground. On top of that, India imports the majority of its crude oil.

The cost of petrol, therefore, encompasses the cost of extraction and refining of the crude oil, the freight charges, the refinery charges.

Rupee to US dollar exchange rate

Since India imports most of the fuel needs, the currency exchange rate also becomes an important determinant in the process. Also, when international crude oil prices rise, so do the petrol prices in Meghalaya.

Excise Duty, Value Added Tax (VAT), and other taxes

Before we arrive at the Retail Selling Price (RSP) for petrol, there are taxes and duties to be accounted for. As a matter of fact, these account for almost 50-60% of the Meghalaya petrol price.

These charges include Excise Duty, VAT, Central Excise Duty, etc. The VAT charges vary from state to state. Each state takes their call on the VAT percentage, depending on how many funds they aim to shore up. States earned as much as Rs. 2.02 lakh crore 1 in 2020-21 through the VAT on petroleum products.

Dealer’s Commission

The final price of the petrol also includes the dealer’s commission & other charges related to the dealer.

How often Petrol Rates in Meghalaya are Revised?

Petrol price in Meghalaya follows the dynamic fuel pricing concept. In accordance with this method, the petrol prices change every day at 6 am. This price takes into account the global and domestic market factors and incorporates those trends into the petrol prices.

Impact of GST on Petrol Rates in Meghalaya
