The price of kerosene would be reduced from between Rs.25 and Rs. 30 with effect from Monday (11), State Minister of Fisheries and Rural Economy Dilip Wedaarachchi said.
He said the decision was taken after considering the inconvenience faced by the fishing community and families of low income earners.
“A liter of kerosene will be available for the price between Rs.70 and Rs. Rs. 80 from Monday,” he said.
