Dharmendra Pradhan Urges the Other States to Reduce Fuel Rates
Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has once again emphasized on the reduction of fuel rates for the people. He said that following the four states- Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat that reduced the retail VAT that led to a drop of about Rs. 2.5 per liter, other states should also cut VAT on diesel and petrol by 5%.
Pradhan said that how the states manage their fiscal model is up to them, but he can only do so much as make a request. He also said that he is in the favor of bringing petrol and diesel under the GST regime and has urged the GST council for the same.
