The Centre on Saturday has decided to cut the central excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre. Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the move will cut the effective price of petrol by Rs 9.5 per litre and diesel by Rs 7 per litre.

“We’ve taken a number of steps to help the poor and middle class. As a result, the average inflation during our tenure has remained lower than during previous governments,” Sitharaman said.

In a series of tweets, FM Sitharaman wrote that the move will have a revenue implication of around Rs 1 lakh crore per year for the government.

Sitharaman also asked the state governments to follow a similar cut in their states. She tweeted that she wish to exhort all state governments, especially the states where the reduction wasn’t done during the last round (November 2021), to also implement a similar cut to give relief to the common man.

Further, Sitharaman also announced that the centre will give a subsidy of Rs 200 per gas cylinder (up to 12 cylinders) to over 9 crore beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana to help the mothers and sisters of the country. She also informed that this initiative will have a revenue implication of around Rs 6100 crore a year.

The decision was taken after Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), on Saturday, increased the price of compressed natural gas (CNG) by Rs 2 which will be effective from May 21. CNG in Delhi is now priced at Rs 75.61 per kg while in Noida, Ghaziabad, and Greater Noida, the auto fuel is priced at Rs 78.17 per kg.

The Centre has also decided to reduce the customs duty on raw materials and intermediaries for plastic products where the import dependence of the country is high. This move will reduce the cost of final products, Sitharaman said.

Lastly, Sitharaman announced that measures are being taken to improve the availability of Cement and reduce the cost of cement through better logistics. She informed that notifications with specific details about the announcements made will be issued by the government of India within the next hour.
