AP CM Asks Centre To Cut Excise On Fuel

With petrol ruling at 55-month high and diesel at record levels, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has asked Central government to cut excise duty on the fuels to ease the burden on people.

In a letter to Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, Naidu said the Centre had between November 2014 and January 2016 hiked excise duty on petrol and diesel nine times to take away gains arising from a slump in global oil prices.
