Maharashtra government tries to get fuel under GST ambit

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday (9 Sep 18) said that the state government is working on various proposals to provide relief from the rising fuel prices. He further mentioned that bringing petroleum products under GST (Goods and Services Tax) is one of the ways of reducing prices.

The state government expects that by bringing the fuel prices within GST ambit the prices will reduce roughly by Rs 5 to 6 per litre.

Fadnavis spoke to a news agency in New Delhi before returning to Mumbai and made it clear that the subject is with the GST Council. He said that if GST council takes a decision to bring it under goods and services tax then Maharashtra Government would support it. 

People expect something must happen now, it can be felt, to have the fuel prices reduced.  No news is more exciting than that of the petrol price and enough is enough with blame game. May be the external facts are the reasons for this unprecedented continual hike in fuel prices; but,  have the regional and central governments done what they should to free the common man from the clutches of the petrol price hike, one wonders.
