PM CALLS ON States Again to Bring Down Vat on Fuel                                 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday the Centre and states should work in tandem, reiterating the theme of cooperative federalism, calling on states that haven’t followed the reduction in excise duty on petrol and diesel by the Centre in November with a decrease in value added tax (VAT) to do so. He emphasized that high taxes on petrol and diesel in such states- almost all opposition –led are an injustice to the people. Beginning his virtual address with the steps taken by the Centre and states to combat the omicron wave and the way forward, the PM shifted to address the global situation and its impact on India. He mentioned the Russia Ukraine war and the consequent disruption in the supply chain, saying this has made coordination between the Centre and states even more essential now. S-ET
