Director Banerjee speaks on petrol price hikes

News Indore, India - 24 May 2012

Statement on Petrol Price Hike

by Mr Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, CII

Rationalization of petroleum prices is one of the most important reforms that industry has been advocating and it has been high on CII's agenda. The current under recoveries in diesel and LPG requires immediate action to ensure that dual pricing of diesel pricing is introduced, where non farm use of diesel should have minimum subsidy.

Also the huge subsidy on urban use of LPG should be phased out. The increase in price of petrol is quite steep and would not resolve the issue of ballooning fuel subsidy. CII would urge the government to address the subsidies in diesel and LPG urgently. Kerosene being a poor man's fuel should continue to get the government support for the time being.
