In lieu of complaints being received by commuters’ w.r.t. availability of petroleum products being sold at higher rates in the name of extra mile premium at various petrol pumps, a meeting was held here to review the availability of ordinary diesel and petrol at petrol pumps under the Chairmanship of R.S. Gupta, Director Food and Civil Supplies.
He directed the officers to ensure diesel and petrol on ordinary rates at every petrol pump all the time besides sufficient additional stock. He clarified that no directions have been issued by the Government of India or petroleum companies regarding availability of extra mile premium only at petrol pumps and those points which have additional storage capacity can sell extra mile premium petrol.
