Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) says that all 400-odd petrol pumps in Delhi will remain closed on October 22 in protest against the Delhi government’s refusal to cut VAT on petrol and diesel.

The association said, “There are about 400 petrol pumps in Delhi which also have linked CNG pumps with them. Both will remain closed in protest from 6.00 am onwards on October 22 and remain closed till 5.00 am on October 23, 2018”.

It was said that the Union government on October cut the petrol and diesel price by Rs. 2.50 by reducing excise duty and asking state-owned oil firms to bear subsidy. In comparison to Delhi, petrol in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana is cheaper by Rs 2.59 and Rs 1.95 per litre, respectively.
