Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman had tweeted, “It will have a revenue implication of around ₹1 lakh crore per year for the government,” the finance minister said in a series of tweets.“I wish to exhort all state governments, especially the states where the reduction wasn’t done during the last round (November 2021), to also implement a similar cut and give relief to the common man,” the minister tweeted.

The fuel prices in India are not under goods and service tax. While the Centre collects excise duty, the state governments collect VAT. Since VAT is different for each state, hence the pricing. Rajasthan levies the highest VAT in the country, followed by Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.
