Petrol and diesel has stopped being available in 47 out of 50 districts of Rajasthan since this morning. Rajasthan Petroleum Dealers Association has gone on indefinite strike for not accepting the demand of reducing VAT.

However, more than 500 pumps in Alwar, Kota, Jaisalmer, Chittorgarh and Jodhpur cities have opted out of this strike due to various reasons.

At the same time, 60 company-run pumps are also working in the state. At the same time, the government has also started talks with the Petrol Pump Association on their demands. Food Minister Pratap Singh is talking to the officials of Khachariyawas Association.

Petrol dealers in Rajasthan are demanding implementation of VAT at par with neighboring state Punjab, as there is a difference of Rs 11.52 per liter in petrol prices between Punjab and Rajasthan. Similarly, there is a difference of about Rs 6.43 in diesel. Due to this, sales are continuously decreasing in the state.

Its effect has not been seen in Kota also.  Here we had definitely supported the symbolic strike for two days, but the pumps have been restarted from Friday.

When sales decreased, many petrol pumps were closed

Due to high VAT in Rajasthan, truck and bus operators fill their vehicles with fuel from neighboring states Punjab, UP, Haryana, Gujarat and Delhi. 25 districts of the state are partially affected by this. The situation is worse in areas like Ganganagar and Hanumangarh. Smuggling of petrol and diesel is also taking place in Hanumangarh and Ganganagar due to its proximity to Punjab. For this reason, 270 petrol pumps have been closed in the last four years and many others are also on the verge of closure.
