A few days ago petrol was getting here at a rate of less than 60 rupees. But, in another city of Puducherry, the situation is completely opposite, because the price of petrol here is Rs 90.76. In such a situation, we know why there is such a difference in the price of petrol in different parts of a union territory…
Rates are different in every city?
You also know that the prices of petrol and diesel are different in every city in every state. Similar is the condition of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh or any other state. However, there is not much difference in the price of petrol and diesel here. There is a difference of up to 3-5 rupees in cities here, but in Puducherry there is a big difference in prices. First, let us tell you why the expressions are different in every city.
Actually, the reason for having different petrol prizes in every city is also tax. Actually, Municipal corporations and municipalities also have taxes according to each city. Depending on each city, it is also known as local body tax. Different taxes are also levied on the basis of each municipal corporation. For example, in Mumbai, Kalyan and Thane also have different taxes due to the Municipal Corporation, due to this the rate is different there. Apart from this, due to transport, tax also gets different, as there are many places where it is difficult to reach the oil from the refinery. In such a situation, the price of petrol can be higher there.
Why such a difference in Puducherry?
You have understood why the prices are different in every city. But the reason for the high rate in Puducherry is that Puducherry is divided into different parts. It is not organized in one place like other states or union territories. Puducherry is a group of districts whose boundaries are not connected to each other. That is, there are many districts and all the districts are in different parts. Because of this, every city has a different rate because of its geographical location.
Please tell that four districts come in Puducherry and the four districts are several hundred kilometers away from each other. If you have to move from Puducherry district to another district, then you may have to travel for 20 hours. Puducherry is made up of four districts Puducherry, Mahe, Yanam and Karaikal. Puducherry is surrounded by Tamil Nadu, Mahe is surrounded by Kerala, Yanam is surrounded by Andhra Pradesh and Karaikal is also surrounded by Tamil Nadu.
