    Ravi,

    I"ve categorically mentioned "by lowering the taxes to a acceptable level " , don't you feel 60% tax on fuel is too high , when the inflation rate at such high levels how's Pranab going to lower it with these ever rising fuel prices ?

    There needs a correction in policies , the loss in revenues ( by lowering tax on fuel ) can be adjusted in many other ways , which will not hamper the common man directly--- that's my point.

    Ravi why not Govt reduce their expenditure rather than squeezing from poor citizens. Just have a look at the facilities being provided for an MP or MLA. There are crores being wasted as their expense. This is just one example. There are 100s of similar things. Why the burden only to common tax payers ?

    Very difficult to do.
    Very easy to do.
  4. I agree Gurji but wanted to know one thing.. according to reports oil companies are at a loss of over 70K crores.

    Couldnt this loss be averted if they had taken decisions many years back rather than doing the same now and putting ordinary people into hardships.

    He he he (no offense to diesel car owners)...if this happens in 2013 then I will stop blaming myself for chosing a petrol Punto over diesel Punto when I bought my 1.2!! And also will stop planning or at least delay my plans to buy a 90HP!!

    Let's see when and if that happens. The decision will lie with the political bosses, not the Secretary.

    10 rupees can easily upset the entire agrarian economy + food security and what not, so definitely there is a lot more thought to be put in before doing so.

    Enjoy the cars in the meantime :up
