THE JOY OF REDUCED PETROL PRICE IS MARRED WITH PETROL PUMPS SOON GOING DRY ON ACCOUNT OF LIMITED STOCKS

The new  petrol prices came into force on Monday, with VAT on Petrol prices being reduced to 0.1%. Petrol in the state now costs Rs 10.87 less, that is Rs 54.90 per litre approximately. The populist measure however has its own side effects, triggering long queues of vehicles at petrol stations across the state on day 1 of the reduced prices coming into force.
