Petrol, diesel become cheaper in Delhi than UP

Petrol and diesel are now cheaper in Delhi as compared to adjoining cities of Uttar Pradesh after the Yogi Adityanath government in the neighbouring state raised taxes on the two fuels.

While petrol and diesel traditionally have been cheaper in Delhi than most states in the country due to lower local sales tax or VAT, the October 5, 2018, cut in the VAT by BJP-ruled states, including UP, resulted in both fuels turning cheaper in places such as Ghaziabad and Noida — the UP towns that adjoin the national capital.
