Union Government plans home delivery of petrol

Vastavam web:Apart from gas cylinders, groceries now we can get petrol and diesel also at our door steps. The union government is planning to implement door delivery system to petrol and diesel too.Soon, tanking up the car or buying diesel to run the generator may no longer entail a trip to the nearest petrol pump. The government is exploring the possibility of allowing all petroleum products not just LPG cylinders to be delivered at consumers’ doorstep.Options are being explored where petro products may be door-delivered to consumers on pre-booking.

This would help consumers avoid spending excessive time and long queues at fuel stations,” Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan said, according to tweets put out by the Petroleum Ministry. He also said the government was not in favour of petrol pumps being shut on Sundays. The Minister, who chaired a consultative committee meeting with parliamentarians in Srinagar, was reacting to a decision by a section of fuel pump operators to down shutters each Sunday from next month. “The Ministry does not approve of or endorse the move by a section of petrol pump dealers to close down fuel stations on Sundays,” he said.
