Please Abolish Cess on Petrol & petrol sign now

Sub : Request for Abolishing cess on petrol & Diesel

Respected Sir ;

Government Of India is collecting cess of Rs. 2 per liter on sale of each liter of petrol & diesel in India since 1998-99 . The entire collection from petrol cess is supposed to be shared between the NHAI (57.5 per cent), the Railways (12.5 per cent) and state road projects (30 per cent). Government has not published any figures on how much cess has been collected every year and what is the utilization done of the money collected. One of the estimates say that the total cess collected on petrol & diesel is to the tune of 30000 Cr. Rs. National Highway Authority of India ( NHAI ) has also failed to proactively declare the figures of money they received every year from central government and utilization they did of that money. In fact NHAI dont need any money for road development now as they are awarding all road projects to private agencies on BOT basis ; and people are paying toll charges for decades for using the roads so developed. So in fact cess on petrol & diesel and toll on road is double taxation for same purpose.

Government of India is about to raise petrol prices by 2-3 Rs./ liter which will have cascading effects on overall price rise. Your government has come to the power for AAM ADMI ; but since last 20 months the common man is frustrated due to inflation and price rise . The decision of increasing petrol & diesel prices further will act like last straw on camels back for common man.

So we request you to kindly abolish redundant cess on petrol & Diesel and thereby avoid price hike in petrol & diesel prices.
