The Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had said that fuel rates will drop further in India in coming days as the situation in the international market has vastly improved.
Pradhan quoted saying: "Petrol, diesel and LPG prices have started reducing now and they'll reduce further in the coming days. We had stated earlier also that we'll transfer benefit from a decrease in crude oil prices in the international market to the end customers."
He had also said that the Centre will not reduce taxes on petrol and diesel prices as both the central and state governments need funds to meet the public demands and carry out the development works.
