After getting news of strike, went to BP station at domestic airport delhi, they confirmed that strike is there, but they will not participate, being owned by BP itself.

TOI says called off.
But company owned pumps would have remained opened anyways.
Small mercies

Yup, called off, as the minister has agreed to give in to their demands. Would this added burden be passed on to us now?

Maybe we too should go on strike, against all the mad cabbies we have on the roads. Would the minister/s care then?

Red face Fuel bunks on strike in Maharashtra from tomorrow i.e 26th August 2014

Reviving an age old thread. Mods - Couldnt find any other related thread, hence posting here. If latest thread exists pls merge or open a new thread if required.

Fuel bunks in Maharashtra are going on an indefinite strike starting tomorrow i.e 26th August. The strike is for protesting against the high and non uniform LBT rates on fuels across Maharashtra state. While Mumbai charges 0.25% LBT, Thane & Navi Mumbai Charges 3% as LBT charges. For Pune its 2%. The protest is also against the VAT rates applied on the fuel. A drop of 3% in VAT rates will see the revenue from fuel sale jump by whopping 25% due to fall in fuel prices by almost 2rs for diesel and 4-5 rupees for petrol.

The bunk owners have been negotiating with the state govt for the past 6 months and there has been no frutiful action from the state govt in this regards. There was aflash strike recently on 12th August for the same reason but that didnt help to resolve the issue nor the state govt took it seriously.

As seen everytime, there will be a mad rush to fill the fuels today evening and one can expect longer lines at the refuelling bunks.

Why shouldnt people of Maharashtra enjoy the benefits of reduced fuel prices like the people of Goa are enjoying?

Last evening was a chaos.

DNA reports:

Late on Monday evening, the BJP announced that abolishment of LBT will be part of its election manifesto. Following this announcement, the Federation of All Maharashtra Petrol Dealers Association also called off its strike.
So, someone has shown a carrot and the dealers have fallen for it.

In Pune it was announced that all the bunks will remain open despite the strike and yet there were huge traffic jams on road surrounding all major fuel outlets. I was caught in two such traffic jams with the police looking helpless as it seemed every two wheeler in Pune was hell bent on getting the tank filled up.

I do not understand why do the people not reflect on what happens each and every time these dealers call an indefinite strike ? It gets called off either before it even begins or else on the very next day.

Absolute madness prevailed at rush hours yesterday.

The chaos was expected as always during such announcements.

The dealers at this stage would believe everything the political party (at the centre) will say as they expect them to come into power soon.

One good thing definitely did happen was Thane Municipal corporation has slashed the LBT rate of Diesel and Petrol from 3.5% to 2%. So the diesel and petrol may be cheaper by peanuts (in fact peanuts are costlier these days). I will still have the tag "Loser" all over my forehead like others in Thane.
