Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren today announced major relief for two-wheeler commuters with ration cards with a massive subsidy of Rs 25 per liter with a limit of Rs 250 per month from January 26 next year in the form of direct bank transfer (DBT) which will benefit up to 62 lakh people in the state.
While taking a dig on Centre, the Chief Minister said “Petrol and diesel prices are touching the sky. Poor families and those from the middle class are being affected. A poor man – despite having a motorcycle at home – can’t use it because he can’t afford petrol…. can’t go to the market to sell his farm produce,”
“That’s why I have decided that if the ration cardholders have fuel refilled in their motorcycles and scooter, we will transfer ₹ 25 per liter in their bank accounts. This arrangement will be brought in force by January 26, 2022, and every poor family can get a reimbursement for up to 10 liters,” he said while addressing to a huge crowd.
