The Chief Minister said that we have only learned through the media that prices have dropped in neighboring states. We are looking at how much VAT has been reduced in these states and which state has issued which order. He said gasoline and diesel prices would be decided here only after seeing orders from neighboring states.
Following the record rise in gasoline and diesel, on November 3 the central government announced a reduction in excise duties on both fuels. As a result, the excise duty on gasoline was reduced by Rs 5 per liter and on diesel by Rs 10 per liter. After this, the states have also reduced the VAT to their level.
