MADURAI: The Madurai bench of the Madras high court on Thursday dismissed a plea that sought to bring petrol and diesel under the GST ambit.
A division bench headed by justice M Sathyanarayanan heard the petition filed by one K K Ramesh said that the process was involved of legislature, in which the court could not give any direction and dismissed the petition. The petitioner said that the main aim of GST is one nation one tax. But, petrol and diesel had not come under the GST. Due to it, fuel prices are increasing daily. Minister of petroleum and natural gas Dharmendhra Pradhan recently said that the GST council should consider bringing petroleum products in its ambit. If it is done so, the price of those fuels would come down.
