Narendra Modi Cess cut, no revenue impact on states, says Sitharaman EXPRESS NEWS SERVICE @ New Delhi A day after the Union government slashed central excise duty on fuel, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday said its entire burden will be borne by the Centre as the reduction h as been made in the Road and Infrastructure Cess, which is not shared with the states. Excise duty on petrol and diesel has four components — Basic excise duty, Special Additional excise duty (SAED), Road and Infrastructure Cess (RIC) and Agriculture and Infrastructure Development Cess (AIDC). Basic excise duty is sharable with states but SAED, RIC & AIDC are non-sharable, so states will not suffer any revenue loss, Sitharaman said in a series of tweets. “The excise duty reduction of `8/litre on petrol and `6/litre on diesel (effective from today) has entirely been made in Road & Infrastructure Cess (RIC). Even in November ’21, the reduction of `5/litre in petrol and `10/litre in diesel was entirely made in RIC,” she added. Sitharaman also juxtapose the development expenditure incurred by the Modi government so far (2014-2022) as against the UPA (2004-2014), saying the figures were `90.9 lakh crore and `49.2 lakh crore, respectively. The Modi government spent `24.85 lakh crore on food, fuel and fertiliser subsidies and `26.3 lakh crore on capital creation, while only `13.9 lakh crore was spent on subsidies during UPA rule, she said. Meanwhile, Maharashtra on Sunday joined the list of a few states that cut value added tax (VAT) on petrol (by `2.08) and diesel (`1.44). Kerala had on Saturday cut the state tax on petrol and diesel by `2.41 and `1.36, respectively .
