The Union Minister of petroleum and Gas Hardeep Singh Puri, on Tuesday, said that people are going to get some relief in the upcoming future as the price of International oil is leisurely and steady.

 

Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Hardeep Singh Puri told a leading media house, that the central government is delicate in the rise in the price of petroleum the increase in price is due to an increase in the price of petroleum in the international market in between the excise tax imposed by central government Rs 32. 


Hardeep Singh Puri added that the tax which the central government has imposed over petroleum is indirectly used for the development of our country moreover the government has provided free vaccination, ration, and other facilities to more the 80 crore people. 

 

The central government has never increased the excise duty over petroleum no matter the price of petroleum has increased by 3 times but the government is imposing the same excise duty as it was in April 2010. If we keep the excise duty aside the state government imposes its tax as the minister informed.
