Perhaps in no other country is there such a huge difference in the price of diesel and petrol and diesel is cheaper by Rs 30 than petrol. The government is finding it impossible to raise the price of diesel, a politically sensitive commodity. A recent steep petrol price hike has just made the difference even more stark with the demand for diesel cars zooming as a result. On We Mean Business, NDTV's Shweta Rajpal Kohli, Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India, Jagdish Khattar, CMD, Carnation India Pvt Ltd, Ratnakar Mahajan, Congress Spokesperson, Abdul Majeed, Partner, Price Waterhouse, Uttam Bose, MD, Hindustan Motors, Arvind Kapur, President, ACMA, & MD, Rico Auto Industries Ltd, and Narendra Taneja, Energy Expert, discuss whether the government should raise taxes on diesel cars.
