NOT AGAIN. As you all know the prices of petrol, disel, gas, CNG has been increased again. It seems to be a never ending delima. And ofcourse its affecting the prices of other commodites to go higher. For us, mostly the transport fare, computer peripherals, food are getting costlier.
Though i am not a government body, but would like to ask you all digitians, what could be the possible solution of this inflation?
We cant tolerate.:punch:

actually there is no solution for this price rise...govt says its facing huge losses due to subsidy provided to fuel and gases...and I hear that now fuel is free from subsidy but gas is still under subsidy.
It means that now fuel price will not increase that drastically like right now...but gas price still can be increased by Rs.100:-?

And to add to that the strikes by oppositions are making it worse. A single day stirke means crores of losses which in turn gets added to the economy loss of the whole country and thus increasing the inflation further. Then why the hell are we supporting strikes???

Government needs to provide good means of public transport. When I go out, I really don't like thousands of cars with only one person in it. But then this is India, everyone would prefer buying a car for himself first. And there is nothing we can do. People in other countries don't even feel like buying their own vehicle because of efficient public transport system.

That's a good point you made.
Here in Pune, there were two different transport bodies operating in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. Both were merged in 2008 I think. From then the bus service has improved to some extent but not satisfactory.
If you see most buses at any time, it will be packed like anything, people hanging on to both the doors, but still they say "We're running on a loss of 2 crore/daily" WTF ?
Surely something is fishy. Where does all the profit go ?
And you know, the ticket charges are much more than those of mumbai which has an highly efficient bus service.

U r absolutely right ico...In mumbai the bus and train system is soo good that we just dont need any other vehicle...but just opposite is the scene in my hometown Nagpur where buses r not dependable soo we have to relay on two wheelers.

In mumbai fare of 35km=Rs.15 (estimated)
In Nagpur cost of 35km=Rs.35+

Public vehicle r much cheaper

In Kolkata,the condition of the roads are pathetic,but the public transport system is really good and probably the cheapest among metro cities.

Govt. is under international pressure and still in our country people are earning less then Rs. 15 daily, who will care those people ... . should they started begging, or all they have to sit in fornt of parliament. Price hike means a lot change ... rich become more rich n poor became more poor .. this is all bout Govt. policies.. All the persons who make such kind of policy, they didn't know the price of atta n daal. Only illiterate people are governing / settled into Govt.
The Agriculture mininster didn't have any concern with agriculture throught his life.
I am taling bout states where duffer people become home minister/agriculture minister/finance minister ... they all are corrupted and i never like this system and that's why i personally hate politicaly people
 
Govt giving subsidy on Petrol was always a joke. We all know how much tax they charge on Fuel..we wud still end up paying less for a litre if govt reduced the taxes and sold petrol/diesel @ International prices..

Today I read that Disel price will be further increased by Rs.3.7 to free it from subsidy...It means food grain and vegetable price will further increase:-?

I wonder why nobody speaks of huge taxes on fuels . something around 40%

Judgement Time!!
erm..it wasn't an increase..it was de regularisation of petrol prices..to be honest i am glad that govt has finally deregularised petrol prices..frankly it never made sense to spend 90000crores on subsidy of fuel prices where as this money could be used in a social program or so but yes i am also critical of the fact that the taxes on fuel is extremely high,i was under the impression that taxes might be reduced but clearly u can sense that the govt is targetting to reduce the huge fiscal deficit in hand,even though this could have been done from 2011 onwards..hopefully they should reduce the fuel taxes in the next financial year...I do not think this is done under international pressure,if it was,it would have been deregularised sometime in 2001 itself when china deregularised it...
 


Exactly..this so called 'Subsidy' thing has always been used by Govt to cheat people.
First they give subsidy on oil prices, which means Oil companies are in loss, and they they add heavy taxes, which means the customer is anyway paying more.
I am in UK for around a year and Hi Octane Petrol is around a pound here, which is approx 65rs. Considering the 2 economies and currency conversion, I think it is multiple times cheaper to buy fuel in UK than in India...So where is the so called people friendly subsidy, if anyway people are paying International prices. in modern India, fuel is no more a thing of luxury, its a basic neccessity and Govt has to reduce taxes on it.

Diesel effects economy much more then petrol...If Diesel price increase its cascading effects r tremendous...
1. Transport price increases(Railway, Bus, truck)
2. Price of Grain, Vegetables, fruits all increase
3. Train, Bus tickets increase

Ultimately Cost of living increases

If petrol price increase by Rs.3...it effects only common public by some Rs.200 extra

petrol price should be hiked much much more than diesel, because petrol is normally used by private vehicles. so much that private vehicle wallahs actually think controlling their car usage.

besides the effect of this fossil fuels on environment is really going more and more severe everyday. we should look forward to the they when fossil fuels will all be gone and we will be forced to use some other types of better "ways".

Topgear's link talks different actually.

UK = Rs.60/litre. India = Rs.50/litre.

I'm actually making a point against BJP and other parties who are causing the "Bharat Bandh." If you see globally, the prices of petrol have increased substantially whereas in India, they haven't increased that much compared to BJP's time. Was BJP really subsidizing the petrol during their rule? All these political parties are retarded.

PS: I'm not a Congress fanboi. It's just that I'm against this mockery of democracy and causing trouble to "aam janta."
