Urban Punjabis Disappointed Over Delay in Petrol Taxes Relief

Petrol consumers in Jalandhar and rest of Punjab have been demanding relief in state taxes ( VAT , Choongi etc ) on petrol. Petrol in Punjab is costliest in the entire country. In neibhouring state of Haryana it is around Rs. 6 per litre cheaper . Petrol in Haryana and Punjab is sourced from same refineries. In Punjab nearly Rs. 36 in a litre are collected as taxes in one form or the other.

Petrol consumers were greatly disappointed when the Finance Minister Punjab did not give any assurance of offering relief.
