Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren on Wednesday stated something important. He said that the state government will give a major concession on petrol as well as diesel prices, but only for two-wheelers.
“Jharkhand government has decided to give a concession of ₹25 per litre petrol to motorcycles and scooter riders,” Soren was quoted as saying by the news agency.
The price of petrol, as well as diesel, has been increasing continuously. Because of this, both middle-class people, as well as poor, are very much affected. Hence Govt would like to offer some relief. Therefore, Rs.25 per litre has been reduced for 2 wheelers from the state level.
“Prices of petrol and diesel are touching the sky today. And this is affecting poor and middle-class families. Despite having a motorcycle at home, a poor man can’t ride it because he has no money for petrol. He is not able to take his produce to the marketplace to sell it,” Soren said in a notice. This notice was posted on the official Twitter handle of the Jharkhand chief minister’s office.
“So, it has been decided that if such ration card holders fill petrol in their motorcycle or scooter, we will transfer ₹25 per litre subsidy to their bank accounts. A family can get this subsidy for 10 litres of petrol every month,” he added.
This benefit would begin from 26th January 2022, Hemant Soren tweeted.
