New Delhi: All 400 odd petrol pumps together with CNG dispensing units in the national capital remain closed Monday in protest against the state government's refusal to reduce VAT on fuel, the Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) said in a statement.

It is about 400 gasoline pumps in Delhi that have also connected compressed natural gas (CNG) stations and all will remain closed for almost 24 hours in protest from 06:00 until 22 October and remain closed until 5 pm on October 23.

DPDs President Nischal Singhania said: "The government had petrol and diesel with Rs 2.50 per liter every 4th of September. This was followed by the reduction of VAT (VAT) of various states, including nearby Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, and provides relief to its residents.

"However, the Delhi government refused to reduce VAT on fuel, both gasoline and diesel, which results in fuel becoming more expensive than borders to Haryana and Uttar Pradesh."
In relation to Delhi, fuel rates in borders such as Uttar Pradesh and Haryana are cheaper, he said.

Due to high prices in Delhi and low prices in states like UP and Haryana, customers tell that petrol pumps in Delhi lead to a significant drop in sales, says Singhania.

Due to price differentials, there has been a sharp decline of 50-60 percent on the sale of diesel in Delhi and 25 percent in gasoline in this quarter, the DPDA president said adding that all 400 pumps in Delhi will neither buy nor sell gasoline, diesel and CNG.

He said the festival season is the peak season for the sale of fuel due to the social travel of residents. "DPDA urges the Delhi government to immediately reduce VAT on gasoline and diesel and encourages commuters to buy Euro VI fuel and save livelihood to employees and owners of gas pumps in Delhi and also save the state's revenue loss," says the statement.!
