Kathmandu, May 27
Recently, the government has increased the price of petrol, diesel, kerosene, cooking gas and aviation fuel, for the second time in the fortnight, inviting protests from stakeholders.
Following that, the council of ministers allowed the Ministry of Finance to decrease the fuel taxes by Rs 10 lived on each litre of petrol and diesel.
“The final decision is yet to be made,” informs a source at the ministry.
The source says the government will reduce Rs 5 from the infrastructure tax and Rs 5 from the customs charge.
