In its second review, the government of India on late Tuesday evening announced a reduction in the windfall tax on Diesel exports to just Rs 5 per litre. The move could benefit fuel exporters such as Reliance Industries. While the tax on diesel exports has been cut from Rs 11 per litre to just Rs 5 per litre, the new additional excise duty (cess) on petroleum crude was increased marginally from Rs 17,000 to Rs 17,750 per tonne, as the trade parity prices followed by domestic oil producers like ONGC and OIL rose marginally since mid-July, in line with the global crude prices. The government notification also said that the tax on ATF has been removed.
