This decision to reduce the fuel price was taken after Chief Minister Conrad Sangma chaired a meeting with the senior government officials following the strike called by the commercial vehicle operators.

The strike was called by Meghalaya Joint Action Committee of Commercial Vehicles (MJACCV) on February 3 for fare revision following the hike in fuel prices.

Sangma announced the reduction and the Chief Minister’s Office has also mentioned that the fuel prices are now cheaper in ”Shillong and Ri-Bhoi” than Guwahati.

With the cess, the Retail Sale Price (February 16) of petrol has come down from Rs 93.26 to Rs 85.86 in the State Capital. The price of Petrol in Ri-Bhoi district is slightly cheaper at Rs 84.76. In Guwahati, the price of petrol is 86.46 on the same date.

The price of diesel has come down from Rs 86.23 to Rs 79.13 in the State Capital and from Rs 85.10 to Rs 78.21 in Ri-Bhoi district. The price of diesel is Rs 80.62 in Guwahati as on February 16, he said. With agency inputs
