Maya govt increases tax on fuel
January, 31st 2009

Mayawati government has cut short the celebrations resulting from the relief on petrol and
diesel prices.

The state government has imposed an additional 98 paise sales tax on each litre of petrol and 29 paise on diesel. This means that instead of the Central governments relief of Rs 5 per litre on petrol, the consumers in UP will get a slash down of just Rs 4.02 and Rs 1.71 on each litre of diesel instead of Rs 2.

This means that the state governments coffers will be richer by Rs 10 lakhs per day going by the consumption of petrol and diesel in the state.

While sales tax on petrol was increased from 23.62% to 26.55%, the hike in case of diesel was from 16.10% to 17.23%.
