Reducing taxes on fuel could push India towards "unmanageable debt" at thh Increased tax compliance could reduce the country's dependence on the revenue earned from taxes on fuel Alluding to former Finance Minister's remark that the government can reduce the tax on petrol by 25 a litre, FM said this was a "trap." heAnother distinguished predecessor of mine had stated that the tax on oil should be cut by 25 per litre.

An analysis of the data released clearly shows that the construction sector is expanding by double our digits. e ar k h ent . It is a job-creating sector. Investment is increasing.
