Now, he came up with a clarification saying that Oil companies are fixing the price for Petrol after the final decision of Union government on Petrol price. He further said that the information on Union government’s price for petrol is Rs. 52. 75 is completely fake. “Union government can only levy the tax. Cess = 31.50 + Excise = 1.40. Totally Union government levies 32. 90 as tax. In the excise tax, 42 % (58 paise) belongs to states.
