Even before goans enjoy the 11 rupee reduction in Petrol Price proposed in the State budget, another Five Rupee Hike looms large as Central Budget comes into force from Sunday

The reduction in petrol price by 11 rupees in the state from 2nd of April could prove to be shortlived as the central government is expected to increase the petrol prices by 5 rupees which again will raise   the price to 60 rupees per liter. It is also expected that other Indian states under immense public pressure could follow suit.
