Union Minster for Petroleum and Natural Gas has asked Dharmendra Pradhan on Sundaysaid that the ”industry wants” essential commodities like petrol and diesel be bought under the GST regime. The minister further said that ”the matter will be taken up with the GST council” meeting.
The move comes after petrol saw a Rs 3.38 jump in its price to Rs 63.47 a litre as compared to Rs 60.09 a litre, a month back. The price of diesel also increased to Rs 52.94 per litre as against Rs 50.2.
Experts believe that inclusion of Fuel under GST at this hour would be tough.
