The petrol and diesel prices in Punjab have become more expensive as the government led by Captain Amarinder Singh has imposed a Special Infrastructure Development fee of 25 paise on both fuels.
A special infrastructure development fee of 25 paise per litre would be levied on the sale of petrol and diesel in Punjab. The fee collection has been implemented from April 6.
Likewise, the petrol and diesel prices in Punjab have gone up since the new levy has been introduced.
In a notification issued by the Punjab government led by Captain Amarinder Singh, it stated that "In exercise of the powers conferred by section 25-A of the Punjab Infrastructure (Development and Regulation) Act, 2002 (Punjab Act No. 8 of 2002), and all other powers enabling him in this behalf, the Governor of Punjab is pleased to direct that a Special Infrastructure Development fee shall be levied, on and with effect from the date of publication of this notification."
The fee would be levied at the rate of "Rs 0.25 per litre on the sale of petrol within the State of Punjab; Rs 0.25 per litre on the sale of diesel within the State of Punjab; and "Rs 0.25 for everyone one hundred rupees of the value of the purchase of immovable property within the State of Punjab."
Several people are struggling in the daily routine as the fuel prices continue to hike ever since the Central government started raising the rates.
