New Delhi, April 20

THE Centre has passed on to the Maharashtra Government the Indian Oil Corporation complaint against Reliance Industries on marketing of diesel through retail outlets in and around Nagpur.

Giving out this information in the Rajya Sabha today, the Petroleum Minister, Mr Mani Shankar Aiyar, said that since the issue related to alleged evasion of sales tax, the matter had been brought to the notice of the Maharashtra Government for appropriate action.

IOC had reported to the Central Government last November that RIL was bringing products from the Jamnagar Refinery on stock transfer basis to its retail outlets in the Nagpur marketing area without any tax implications.
