Tax cuts on fuel now inevitable to avoid cascading inflationary effect

Tuesday, 23 January 2018

Urban Indians in cities like Pune and Mumbai are now reeling under the shock of fuel price hike. On Monday, the price of petrol in Pune city and in Mumbai crossed the psychological barrier of Rs 80 per litre. The price is now at an unprecedented level and it has reached this stage through successive small hikes of Rs 1 or even less every day in the last 20 or 25 days. Apart from the government’s tax burden which has risen substantially in the last 16 to 18 months, the other reason for the hike in prices is rising demand for oil in the international markets.
