PTI New Delhi | Updated on March 13, 2011

The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has requested the State government to reduce the value added tax (VAT) on diesel to 9 per cent from 12.5 per cent at present, in line with neighbouring Haryana.

“About 400 petrol dealers of Delhi are seeking parity in VAT with Haryana in the ensuing Delhi Budget so that smuggling of diesel can be checked,” the DPDA vice-president, Mr Nishit Goel, said in a statement.

The Delhi government is scheduled to table the Budget in the Assembly on March 22.
