Last week, Union Petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan had voiced optimism that petroleum products will be brought under the GST (Goods and Service Tax) purview that will help in checking volatility in fuel prices. “In the long run, petroleum products are bound to be included within the ambit of the GST regime … It is only a matter of time. It will immensely help in containing prices of petrol and diesel,” Pradhan told reporters in Bhubaneswar.
