  • This is an interesting post. Not too many people will be aware of the amount of duty they pay as part of the petrol price. This is even more so in states such as Maharashtra where the tax component is 5 rupees more than in Delhi. The problem is, the duties earned have been deployed in these massive cash hungry schemes such as the National Employment Guarantee, and the Farm loan waiver scheme.
