About 77% of Indians want petrol and diesel under GST: LocalCircles survey
As many as 77 per cent of citizens want petrol and diesel to be included under the ambit of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), as per a survey conducted by LocalCircles. The survey noted that by bringing petrol and diesel under the purview of GST, the cost of living for many will improve and it could give a huge impetus to the economy and businesses via increased consumer spending. However, both the center and states will see loss of revenue in the short term, it cautioned. The survey received more than 7,500 responses from citizens located in 379 districts of India.
