Prime Time Zone, Webdesk: Fuel prices across the country have risen to record highs, emptying the pockets of ordinary people. Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das has asked the central and state governments to reduce indirect taxes on petrol and diesel. Shaktikanta Das opined that there needs to be austerity in terms of taxes to reduce price pressure in the economy. CPI inflation rose to 5.5 per cent in December, excluding food and fuel inflation, due to the impact of rising crude oil prices and higher indirect taxes on petrol and diesel.
Also, inflation in key commodities and services, mainly in the transport and healthcare sectors, has risen, Das said. Meanwhile, taxes levied by the Center and the states account for more than half of petrol and diesel prices. The Center has refused to reduce excise duty despite a sharp rise in fuel prices over the past two months. In the wake of the lockdown imposed in March last year, Rs. 13, Rs. 16 raised.
