India raises windfall tax on crude by Rs 1,000; removes taxes on diesel, ATF
India has significantly increased the windfall profit tax on crude oil from Rs 1,300 to Rs 2,300 per tonne. Simultaneously, New Delhi abolished the tax on diesel and aviation turbine fuel (ATF), maintaining the absence of windfall taxes on petrol.
Previously, windfall taxes of 50 paise per litre and one rupee per litre applied to diesel and ATF, respectively, which have now been eliminated. These revised rates came into effect on January 2, 2024.
