The new taxes implemented by government during the 2021 budget would witnessed unexpected increment in fuel prices by almost 50 pesewas per liter from May 1, 2021.

This follows the implementation of the 30 pesewas taxes on petroleum products as announced in the 2021 budget and new levies introduced by the National Petroleum Authority.
