As G7 feuds, Xi and Putin play up their own club
Vienna has been discussed as a possible venue for a summit between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump , the Kremlin said Saturday. On May 8, Trump officially withdrew the USA from the UN-endorsed nuclear agreement and plans to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

Now, due to delay on the part of Federal Board of Revenue in establishing a mechanism for general sales tax (GST) collection under a deregulated system, the oil industry has managed to get the margins revised in line with an old Consumer Price Index (CPI)-based formula. The prices in Delhi are the cheapest in all metros and most State capitals. It costs Rs 66.71 per litre.

A meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet held on May 30 and presided over by the then Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi approved the hike in margins of petrol and diesel to be effective from July 2018, reported Express Tribune.

Rawat also said, "Higher oil prices significantly impact not just India's economy but household budgets as well as it leads to increase in the cost of transportation and therefore impacts a lot of other products in the inflation basket".
