Haryana slashes VAT on kerosene

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda announced the decision of the state government to waive off five per cent VAT on kerosene, thus making it cheaper by 70 paise per litre in the state.

Kerosene users in Haryana will now have to pay Rs 14 per litre instead of Rs 14.70 per litre price owing to the increase announced by the central government on Friday.

The VAT on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) had already been waived in Haryana in 2008.

“The waiver on kerosene today makes Haryana a VAT-free state for these two key items,” Hooda said here in a statement.
