Diesel price decision not to reduce fuel subsidy bill - Chidambaram
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's budget-busting fuel subsidy bill for the current fiscal year ending in March is expected to remain unchanged even after a government decision to allow state-run oil companies to set diesel prices, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said on Thursday.
"When they will make this small correction and how much, I can't say," he said. "So I am not factoring it."
