The article focuses on a provision in the Union Budget 2008 in India that removes new refinery projects of income tax benefits. A Sunset clause for 100% tax exemption for refining of mineral oil has been introduced in the Budget memorandum. S. V.

According to a report on the Union Budget 2008, the elimination of tax holiday on refining will adversely impact new refinery projects.
