Bhubaneswar: After the Central Government today announced a total relief of Rs 2.5 per litre on petrol and diesel in collaboration with oil companies, Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan requested the Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to reduce the VAT on fuel.

“In a big development today, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley announced a total relief of Rs 2.50 per litre on petrol and diesel in collaboration with oil companies. The Central Government will cut excise duty by Rs 1.5 per litre on petrol and diesel, while oil marketing companies will absorb the loss of Rs 1 per litre,” said Pradhan in a press meet at the BJP headquarters here.

Quoting Jaitley urging the States to provide relief on fuel prices in tandem with Central Government’s decision so that the consumer gets a total relief of Rs 5 per litre, Pradhan said, “I request Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to reduce VAT on petrol and diesel to give relief for customers.”
