New Delhi, 21/5: In a big relief to the common man, the government on Saturday slashed excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 per litre and on diesel by Rs 6 per litre.

“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,” said Finance Minister Sitharaman.
