Why Petrol & Diesel Not Included in GST: Kerala High Court to GST Council

In the case of Kerala Pradesh Gandhi Darshanvedhi vs Union of India, Kerala High Court has asked GST Council that why petrol & diesel are not included in GST.

The court has asked the GST council to file a statement in this regard within ten days.

‘The unprecedented hike in the price of petrol and diesel pushes the public into immense hardship by which their right to life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution is violated.’, the petitioner contended.

The Court entertained the petition and sought reasons from GST Council.
