Jaipur, Feb 19 (TIWN) Continuing its northbound trend in Rajasthan, the price of non-premium petrol crossed the Rs 100-mark for the first time in Sriganganagar district on Wednesday to reach Rs 100.13 per litre, while diesel price stood at Rs 92.12 a litre.

Gehlot said in the Assembly on Monday that the Centre has not left any scope for the states to reduce fuel prices.  “The Union government has reduced excise duty or diverse components on fuel price, which was earlier shared with the states and vice versa. The excise duty on diesel was reduced from Rs 8 to Rs 1, leaving the states with lesser share in their hands. This is the reason why the states can’t reduce the existing taxes on fuel, as it would affect the revenues of the state,” the Rajasthan CM had said.
