What is a windfall tax?
Windfall tax is a surcharge levied on companies or industries that witness unexpectedly high profits, often due to sudden increase in prices or unforeseen circumstances. The government can impose this tax to slice out a portion of the unanticipated gains and use it for public welfare or for dealing with economic issues. In India, windfall tax is imposed on domestic crude oil when the global benchmark breaches the $75 per barrel mark. Export of diesel, aviation turbine fuel (ATF) and petrol attract windfall tax if product margins exceed $20 per barrel.
