They might settle for Rs 2 hike at the end. And that was a good joke about IT salaries jumping 20-30% every year.

This was inevitable. I am surprised they held off so long. Only, Diesel should have been hiked the same (or even more) than petrol. All price distortions must be removed sooner or later.

What about hiking Kerosene (less adulteration) and LPG?

They will propose a hike of 5 Rs for petrol and 3 Rs for Diesel and they reduce 1 Re for both after "consulting" the coalition parties. Diesel consumers get less beating since diesel is considered to be used by farmers and public transport.

I heard there is a proposal to put more burden on Tax payer for LPG. If the proposal is approved by govt, then ALL tax payers will end up paying Rs207 extra for the LPG we buy now. Govt will stop providing the subsidy for tax payers and provide subsidy ONLY to below poverty line people...

I am "proud" that my country is the ONLY country [AFAIK] that punishes the tax payers more & more...

The news says proposing not decided to hike the fuel price.

So, for all the cribbing about fuel increase we have opposition party who for some vote bank will take out procession traffic jams and more pinching of wasting fuel on streets.

Bandh by distributors causing scarcity of vegetables and commodities. Inflation will rise the prices will rise raising more LOSSES.

Then after all this hue n cry the fuel price which would have been raised by 4 will be then corrected to 2 or 2.5.

BUT the other things will not reduce in short TOTAL LOSS>......

Yeah Right!!!!! If they are selling it at a loss how come ministers have a luxury life and crore's of money in their bank and as property assets.

And why do i see Govt cars, Police gypsy's and other govt vehicles roaming around behind each other in circles in 2nd gear in the evening ?? just to show the petrol bills.

I travel around 50+ KM daily on an average monthly and sometimes 200km+ a day. I need a METRO!!!

to think of it, I dont mind paying 207 extra for LPG, and 5 more for petrol. but provided
1. govt should stop saying things like, "We are shouldering the cost of subsidy". Its actually the money they take from us in the name of VAT/service tax/income tax.
2. The taxes should come down to the level, so that thes withdrawls of subsidies does not impact us on yr to yr basis.
3. Govt starts publishing its spendings, including salaries,perks,department wise expense (basically each and every penny of it). Since they are "public servents" and surviving on public money, public have right to know how is there money being spent.

I hope chitambram does not stop reading this post after 1 line itself

I was expecting this from the last 6 months. Every other day the government used to give indications of the losses the petrol companies are making. Anyways Rs.2 aint going to pinch a big hole in my pocket

we all know the bitter truth about our tax system. most of the tax collected goes into the pockets/lifestyles/securities of politicians/mlas.

they do deserve this, afterall they have worked hard getting there positions.

Each plolitician is a curse to our nation. (with few exceptions--may be!!)

sorry for going offtopic here .. but even after paying all our taxes what do we get in return!! electricity cuts! max 2-3hrs water supply! poor roads/traffic! horrible education system! no security!

But i am sure nothing can be done to correct this, and we all have to continue fillings pockets of our so called leaders who are leading us to HELL..

mods, pls remove this post if not appropiate and i request to start a post (if possible) under some other forum to carry on the discussion on this topic
