CHANDIGARH: Days after the Centre reduced excise duty on fuel, the Congress-led government in Punjab on Sunday lowered the VAT on petrol and diesel making them cheaper by Rs 10 per litre and Rs 5 per litre in the state.

The new rates will be effective from midnight.

Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi announced while addressing the media after the cabinet meeting.

''We are reducing petrol rate by Rs 10 per litre and diesel rate by Rs 5 per litre from midnight,'' said Channi.

Currently, the petrol and diesel rates in Punjab are Rs 106.20 and Rs 89.83 per litre respectively.

The Shiromani Akali Dal, Bharatiya Janata Party, and the Aam Aadmi Party had been demanding the state government to reduce fuel tax to provide relief to consumers.
