Maybe Bangalore is an exception...but certainly not NCR !
Chennai has one of the worst climates among all cities.
A senior colleague of mine used to cycle 7 + 7 kms everyday to office.
Today he has grown up into a CEO!!! and still rides a cycle to work.

and he has inspired me to use public transport. I lose 1/2 an hour per trip by doing so. but it's worth it for i don't have to worry about morons jumping in front of my car or denting my bumpers. And i reach office with no stress.

Inspiring! Till the time one tries it, the demons rule the roost. Once past, its easier than you thought it would be. True for both cycling and public transport.

Quoted from a Malyalam daily - Kerala Kaumudi of 06/07/2010 Page 4 from a news item titled 'Fuel Price hike - only a political game'

Petrol price details (per litre in rupee):

Base price: 25.70
Excise duty: 14.78
Transportation: 0.04
State Sales Tax (Kerala): 11.76
Cess: 0.12
Commission: 1.13
Total 53.53

Diesel price details (per litre in rupee):

Base price: 27.26
Excise duty: 4.74
Transportation: 0.05
State Sales Tax (Kerala): 7.91
Cess: 0.08
Commission: 0.67
Total 40.71

These are the split details of the new prices.

I did not note down the split of products that is got when refining a barrel of crude which also was reported earlier. Will update if I manage to dig that paper.

Thanks for the info, it is indeed an eye opener for me.
1. Can some one explain more on the state sales tax & excise duty ?
2. What would happen when we de - regularize diesel prices?
3. As it happens in US did any one notice regular price change in pertol after de - regularizing it last week?

Anyone here thinks that private diesel vehicle-owners should be made to buy diesel at "market" rates?

I would like to know what you want, I would surely think it is ideal as the freeing up of diesel would surely help the cause of de-regulation.
Moreover, nothing wrong with it, after all, petrol guys are doing that.
But this would also help reduce the manufacturers selling diesel prices at a premium prices.

This would make the diesel car available in reasonable rates.

OT: Isnt the ideology of rich guys paying less running price similar to the Licence Raj?

Not necessarily esp. if the Parikh suggestion of One Time Tax of Rs.80,000 is implemented.

Yay! Hear, hear. This year (sadly) the monsoon's hardly anything at all. Go pick that bike up right away, and smile as you ride past pumps and queues of vehicles stuck in traffic. PM/call if you need help buying a bike.

What bike ? A lousy bike usully kills the enthu. Also, having a 'support group' initially helps. Cycling is addictive once you're past the initial barriers.

Delhi cuts Diesel VAT from 20% to 12.5% effective July 20.

Diesel costs Rs.40.10 per litre in the capital and after the decrease in VAT, it will cost Rs.37.73 per litre.

There was some news of another price rise of Rs.1 / L from monday.

Mumbai is already the highest price for petrol I think.

Weird.
