    Petrol Price To Come Down Soon: Pradhan

    Pradhan, who has been elevated as Cabinet minister this month and given additional charge of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said prices of refinery oil went up because the production of oil dropped by 13 per cent in the US due to floods.

    On being asked about the margin of the oil companies, he said they are being run by the government.

    "And everything is crystal clear," he said, ruling out "higher margins" for the companies.

    When asked about bringing oil under the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Pradhan said that he hoped that it might be brought under the GST. "It will extend the enormous benefit to customers."
