Time not right to bring petrol, diesel under GST: Nirmala Sitharaman

Sitharaman is chairing the 45th meeting of the GST Council in Lucknow today

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday said that petrol and diesel will not come under the ambit of GST.
 
"On the direction of court it was brought on to table but members spoke very clearly they do not want it to be included in GST," Sitharaman said.
 
"This will be reported to the high court as the GST Council felt it was not the time to bring petroleum products under the GST," she added.
 
Sitharaman is chairing the 45th meeting of the GST Council in Lucknow today. The meeting is the first in-person meeting of the GST Council in nearly two years. Extension of compensation to states beyond 2022 was the agenda.
