Mamata Govt Cuts Petrol, Diesel Prices By 1 Rupee Per Litre

Please wait...

Petrol and diesel prices in West Bengal are set to come down by Re 1 per litre by midnight today.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said her government will slash the prices of petrol and diesel by one rupee per litre.

She also urged the Centre to reduce the cess on fuel prices. “For the time being, we have decided to slash one rupee for each litre of petrol and diesel. We also demand that the central government consider cutting down the cess on diesel and petrol prices,” Banerjee told reporters at the state secretariat.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo alleged that the BJP-led central government hiked excise duty nine times, even when the global crude prices were falling. “Our government has never increased the sales tax or cess during all these years,” she said.
