New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) The Union government has reduced the windfall tax on petroleum crude to Rs 1,700 per tonne from Rs 2,300 a tonne in its fortnightly revision as oil prices have come down in the international market.The reduction which comes into effect from Tuesday while benefit upstream oil companies ONGC (NS:ONGC) and Oil India (NS:OILI) Ltd as their tax outgo on sales of crude will come down.

The government had first imposed the windfall tax on crude oil in July last year amid soaring crude oil prices.
