gaahh....10rs per litre..!!! they have gone mad, i tell you...MAD...!!

did somebody ever care to ask the petro guys, how exactly are these "LOSS" figures arrived at??? because they sure as hell aren't putting money from their own pockets to refine crude; are the losses on a YoY basis? QoQ basis? or on world-wide parity-price basis..?? well, who knows...as long as govt. keeps compensating them for the self-induced subsidies, everything is A-OK....

So says the ET :( All these buggers heading these petro companies should be sent to an assylum and checked for mental imbalance. I mean, ttheek hai, they figure that when they ask for a rupee's hike they get a much reduced hike after much deliberations. But just for that reason to ask for a ludicrous hike of Rs.10.50 per liter?!!! Should be caned just for making that stupid statement/demand.

And I do not believe their loss figures... Its all politics. That is what it is. Otherwise with such humongous losses across the country these companies would have submerged in the sea by now. However this circus is going on since the last three years. Every two months they raise the hullabaloo of how they are loosing and will go down unless government increases prices... and then to add gravity to their statement they also tell how the last price hike only covered 10% of the actual requirement and they have been burdened. At this rate by now IOC and their ilk should have been auctioned after filing for bankruptcy. Instead every year they increase their revenues and become reacher when the annual results are declared. IOC figures in the Fortune-500 list as well :P

Talking about politicians, here is the 85 year old mayor of Mississauga, about 50kms from Toronto, who still drives herself. Ignore the accident part because if she had a convoy of 20 cars like Indian politicians then the accident would never have happened!

Hello guys! I tell you there will be no major difference in the metros especially even if petrol costs Rs. 60/ ltr.
The main problem will be diesel prices with truckers going on a strike and a subsequent increase in consumer goods etc..
Not again Mr. Minister

Good-day people!

Hi!
as per ex petro minister it costs Rs 16 odd for litre of petrol for govt. rest all are taxes( central customes, central excise, state sales tax, state octroi etc etc etc) petro products are not covered under VAT. so there is cascading effect of indirect taxes on petro products. the losses made out are on paper. govt can reduce the taxes in proportion to international crude prices in such a way that they are tax neutral. ex petro minister was advocating this. what actually govt is doing is in the name of rise in crude prices they are actually getting more and more.
imagine the case where crude is 30 $ and customs and excise at 150%( actual figures i do not know) then the rate will be 30+45 $= 75$
now crude is 72$ our great govt wants the excise and customs at the same old rate say 150% and it wants oil companies to sell at old rates . so govt will get more taxes bec they are taxing base price of 72$ instead of 30$. oil companies will end up in notional losses.
what manisankar iyer was advocating was u can reduce the rates in such a way that govt gets same 45$ instead of 108%( 150% of 72$).but finance minister dont want it
i hope iam clear
