There was no relief in petrol and diesel

There was also an expectation of reduction in VAT on petrol and diesel in the budget. It was believed that the Bhajan Lal government could make an important announcement regarding reduction in the rate of VAT on petrol and diesel, but this did not happen. In Rajasthan, more VAT is levied on petrol and diesel than in other states of the country. Because of this, petrol is available cheaper by Rs 16 and diesel by Rs 11 in other states of the country as compared to Rajasthan.
