Hyderabad: The Telangana Petroleum Dealers’ Association (TPDA) has demanded that the State government immediately withdraw 5 per cent Value Added Tax (VAT) imposed by previous government on transport charges on petroleum and LPG tankers.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Friday, TPDA, along with Telangana Petroleum Tank Trucks Owners’ Association (TPTTOA), has also asked the Telangana government to withdraw 14.5 per cent VAT on transport charges imposed by it since May 9, 2016. It warned the State government that it, along with TPTTOA, would observe “transport bandh” on May 30 if the government failed to respond to its demand.

Stating that there was no VAT on transport charges in any State in the country, it asked the Telangana government to concede its demand and avert the bandh. It said that the united AP government never implemented collection of levy, but the present regime was compulsorily collecting VAT forcefully. TPDA leaders N Dinesh Reddy, G Vinay Kumar, Prabhakar Reddy, Rajiv Amaram, Kaladhar, TPTTOA leaders K Rajashekar Reddy, Syed Arif-ul-Hassan and others were present.
