New Delhi/UNI: The prices of petrol and diesel remained unchanged for the 19th day in a row on Tuesday.
The fuel prices had come down sharply on Nov 4, 2021, after the Centre announced reduction in excise duties on petrol and diesel by Rs 5 and Rs 10 respectively.
In the national capital, a litre of petrol costs Rs 103.97, Rs 104.67 in Kolkata, Rs 109.98 in Mumbai and Rs 101.40 in Chennai.
Similarly, a litre of diesel is available at Rs 86.67 in New Delhi, Rs 89.79 in Kolkata, Rs 94.14 in Mumbai and Rs 91.43 in Chennai.
After the Centre cut the excise duties, most state governments and union territories too reduced Value Added Tax (VAT) on petrol and diesel, providing much relief to the common man.
Some states, mostly non BJP-ruled, are yet to undertake any reduction in VAT on motor fuels.
However, Punjab and Rajasthan have reduced the taxes from their side.
