No date fixed for ministers' meet on diesel prices - official

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The government has not fixed a date yet for a meeting of Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM) to discuss raising the prices of diesel, kerosene and cooking gas, which are sold at state-set cheaper rates, the finance secretary said.

“As of date there is no EGoM (to review prices of subsidised fuel)” R.S. Gujral told reporters on Wednesday.

Decisions taken by the EGoM do not require approval from the cabinet.
