The Centre's announcement to slash the central excise duty on petrol and diesel by Rs 5 and Rs 10 respectively and the decision by many state governments to follow suit by reducing the value-added tax at their end has seen fuel rates fall drastically after they soared to record highs in recent months. The government blamed the global upsurge in crude oil prices as the reason behind the fuel price hike. The government hopes that with the reduction in excise duty on petrol and diesel, the inflationary pressure will reduce and boost consumption, thereby helping the poor and middle classes.
