Minister of Petroleum Puri
Oil Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said the government plans to cut fuel prices, but as states do not want fuel to be covered by the GST, oil prices will not fall."If your question is do you want the petrol prices to come down then the answer is yes. Now, if your question is why the petrol prices are not coming down, then the answer is because the states don't want to bring it under GST,
Puri said in an interview with PTI,However, Puri defended the government, saying the centre levied a 32 yen per litre tax and the profits would be used for various welfare programs."The Centre charges ₹32 per litre (as taxes on petrol). We charged ₹32 per litre when the fuel price was USD 19 per barrel, and we are still charging the same even when the price rose to USD 75 per barrel. With this ₹32 per litre, we provide free ration, free housing and Ujjawala, among several other schemes, to the people,"
He said.Meanwhile, gasoline and diesel prices across the country were unchanged today (September 22nd). Gasoline and diesel prices were last revised on September 5th, when gasoline and diesel prices in the capital were each reduced by 15 Paise per litre.The gasoline price in Delhi is 101.19 yen per litre, while the diesel price is 88.62 yen.
