Qatar urges India to include natural gas in GST to create demand

Qatar Gas CEO Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani urged the Indian government to include the natural gas under the GST framework to help create demand for the environment friendly fuel in India. Qatar currently supplies 8.5 million tonnes a year of liquefied natural gas to India. It is the country's single largest source of imported gas, supplying about 40% of all overseas shipments reaching India. In October last year, Russian oil firm Rosneft, which had acquired Essar Oil in 2017 for $12.9 billion, also demanded levy of GST on petroleum products.
