  • Arun Jaitley,Fuel price hike,Finance minister

He said the Kerala government wants the Centre to remove taxes on petrol and diesel that were imposed when the BJP-led government imposed in 2014 after coming to power.

After this hike, Petrol is being retailed at Rs 81.68 per litre and Diesel is being retailed at 73.24 per litre in the National capital. Diesel prices in Chennai increased by 22 paise to Rs 79.79 a litre and by 20 paise to Rs 77.30 per litre in Kolkata. However, diesel prices were cut by 70 paise in Mumbai and were sold at Rs. 76.75 per litre, a day after Maharashtra announced reduction in diesel prices by around Rs 4/litre.

But. Overall Price Can Be Reduced By Rs 5 Per Litre.

. When the global crude oil prices were at a historic low, the government continued to collect higher taxes on fuel, a strategy that in part helped it lower the fiscal deficit to 3.5% of GDP in the latest fiscal year. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday assured the markets that the government would not go back to regulating fuel prices. After continuously being on an ascent for over three months, the fuel prices are likely to witness a dip with effect from Thursday midnight.

He also asked state governments to follow suit by cutting a sales tax or VAT by a similar amount.

In a boost to oil companies, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday eased the overseas borrowing norms by up to $10 billion.

After the minister's announcement, Jharkhand, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra too announced a reduction in fuel prices. But growing public anger over surging fuel prices has caught the attention of the government.
