While the whole country is blazing with the hiking price of petrol, Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren stated that the state government will give a Rs 25/litre concession on petrol and diesel prices, but only for two-wheelers. He added that it will be a relief to the poor, the labourers and middle-class families of the state. The concession is to be implemented from January 26 onwards.
However, the concession has a cap. As per reports, the concession will be applicable only for up to 10 litres of petrol per month and the concession amount will be transferred to the beneficiaries via DBT. The concession will be given to the people who have ration cards. The announcement was made as the Soren government completed two years today. His Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) stormed to power after winning the assembly elections in 2019.
