The government has slashed the windfall tax on crude petroleum on Tuesday. The special additional excise duty on crude petroleum has been cut from Rs 9,600 per tonne to Rs 8,400 per tonne, according to a gazette notification.

The new tax rates will take effect on May 1, it said. The taxes on diesel, petrol and aviation turbine fuel will continue to remain nil.

Every two weeks, the tax rates are reviewed based on the average oil prices from the previous two weeks.

India first imposed windfall profit taxes on July 1 last year, joining a growing number of nations that tax the supernormal profit of energy companies.
