The government raised its hands!
Let us tell you that at this time in seven states of the country, petrol has crossed Rs 100 per liter. In Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar, even diesel has crossed Rs 100. In such a situation, the country’s Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan says that this is a matter of concern, but for development works, the central and state governments need extra money from taxes on petrol, diesel. In such a situation, it is clear that the government is not going to reduce the tax on fuel. But the government is ready to bring petrol and diesel under the ambit of GST. First Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and then Dharmendra Pradhan have also said that if the state wants, it can happen. But in the meeting of the GST Council held in the past, there has been no discussion about petrol and diesel so far.
Central and state governments charge heavy taxes
For your information, let us tell you that 60 percent of the price of petrol is from Central Excise and state tax, while in diesel it is 54 percent. Central excise duty on petrol is Rs 32.90 per liter, while that on diesel is Rs 31.80 per litre. Petrol diesel prices usually change daily, these prices are fixed on the basis of benchmark international crude prices and foreign exchange rates. That is, it is clear that unless the central and state governments reduce the tax, it is difficult for the common man to get relief from inflation.
