Diesel to get cheaper in Delhi by over ₹8 per litre

Diesel in Delhi will get cheaper as the Delhi Cabinet today decided to reduce VAT or value-added tax on the fuel to 16.75% from 30%. This will reduce price of diesel in Delhi from ₹82 to ₹73.64 or by ₹8.36 per litre, said Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. The Delhi government had in May hiked value-added tax (VAT) on the auto fuels. The Centre levies excise duty on the two auto fuels. It had also hiked excise duty sharply in May this year. #dieselprice #Delhi #Cmkejriwal
