The SAED on the export of diesel, petrol and jet fuel or ATF, has been retained at ‘nil’.

The new rates are effective from May 16, an official notification said.

India first imposed windfall profit taxes on July 1, 2022, joining a host of nations that tax supernormal profits of energy companies.

The tax rates are reviewed every fortnight based on average oil prices in the previous two weeks. (PTI)
