Regular petrol tops Rs 100/litre for 1st time, in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar
NEW DELHI: The price of regular petrol consumed by the masses shot up to Rs 100.13 a litre in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar on Wednesday, the first time an automotive fuel has crossed the Rs 100-mark anywhere in the country. In other states, the prices mostly ruled above Rs 90 a litre mark as high central and state taxes bumped up the impact of rising crude prices.
Diesel prices too made a record at Rs 92.1 a litre in Sri Ganganagar, while generally raging well above Rs 80 per litre in other states. Unmoved by these record prices, the Centre has ruled out any tax cut and is blaming oil exporters for jacking up crude prices.
This is unlike in October 2018, when, after petrol price rose to Rs 84 a litre and diesel Rs 75.45 in Delhi, the Centre had reduced excise duty by Rs 2 per litre on October 4 and by Rs 1.5 the next day.
Some 18 states also reduced VAT at Centre’s behest.
Enjoy achee din along with andh-bhakts!!
Feku want everyone to use horse-carts. Petrol price at historical highest when crude oil is in the lowest price.
The central and all state go nments should reduce tax rates to help consumers.
Modi hai to mumkin hai
Morons what they are waiting for why they dont cut excise duty on fuels they raised when crude prices were low and This go nment is pro corny capitalist and not for the middle class people
What do you expect If you vote a person who has fake degree. This feku has zero knowledge of economics.
Feku is blaming Nehru for this also.
