Punjab Budget -No Relief to Urban Punjabis on Electricity and Petrol

Urban Punjabis have been ditched by all

Petrol in Punjab is nearly Rs. 10 costlier than in Haryana . No relief has been granted . Hundreds of petrol pumps near the Haryana border are facing closure.

No relief has been granted to the Urban Punjabis on electricity . Landless shopkeepers have to pay electricity rates at penal rates euphemistically called commercial rates. Octroi ( Chungi ) also continues.
