Petrol bunk owners are still collecting entry tax, much to the inconvenience of consumers. After Goods and Services Tax (GST), all the other taxes have been cancelled. In neighbouring Karnataka, the entry tax has been removed and only GST is being collected, reducing the price of petrol by Rs. 3 a litre. The same should be done in Telangana, consumers said. GST rates in hotels and eateries have been imposed immediately, leading to increase in pricod es. But where it is advantageous to consumers, it is not implemented, consumers observed.
