Buddy, why do you get frustrated so much ? Its good you have a girl, else half of your house would have already been burning.
Chill, me also in same boat, infact we have more diesels than petrol but I am least bothered about this rule. There are other advs of diesel too -
1. They are available everywhere. Seen fuel pumps where only diesel is sold, especially on highways,
2. The FE is more by atleast 25-30% than petrol,
3. Chances of adulteration in diesel is quite less compared to petrol.
If diesel goes up by Rs.10/-, I wonder where our inflation will stand at.
This subsidy is all farce. See this way -
Central Govt - Custom duty, excise;
State Govt - VAT,
Local bodies (in MH)- Octroi.
These taxes are heavy & are charged in % & not fixed amount.
Eg. If say octroi in Pune is 10%.
When petrol is Rs. 50/-, PMC earns Rs.5/L;
When petrol is Rs. 80/-, PMC earns Rs.8/L.
Same is case with state & central Govt. It is like they extract a lot from your pocket & give part of it back to you in form of so called subsidy. The Govt is not paying anything from its pocket.
Best thing is to remove subsidy & cut taxes, it will be the same thing.
Seems Govt thinks all Indians are idiots, forgetting that most who fled mental hospitals, have reached Delhi.
