The civilians of Jaigaon, a city in Alipurduar district, are buying petroleum fuel which is cheaper in the Himalayan Kingdom by crossing the border.

Bhutan had restarted the 4 border points which is also linked to India after almost two and a half years since emergence of Covid-19 sealed it. Indian Oil Corporation Bharat Petroleum Corporation and Hindustan Prtroleum Corporation provided petroleum fuels to Bhutan from India. “The fuels are sold at international prices. As Bhutan does not levy tax on the fuels sold in the country, the prices always remain less than our country,” the secretary of the Jaigaon Merchants’ Association, R.S. Gupta stated. The rate of petrol is Rs 107.3 per litre whereas diesel is Rs 93.9 per litre in the district.
