Nagpur: If you have not get your fuel quota for your bikes or cars yet, get it now and get it extra! The reason – city fuel pump dealers is likely to go on ‘purchase stir’ in order to to press for the implementation of recommendations of the Apurva Chandra committee.
The effect of ‘no purchase’ agitation will become visible in the city on November 4 when stock will deplenish at most petrol pumps. Vehicle users will face some problems on November 4. However oil company owned petrol pumps will remain open as usual.
If their demands are not met, from November 5 they will adopt ‘one-shift sales’ system, that is, petrol pumps will remain open only between 9 a.m. to 6 pm in the city limits. Henceforth, petrol pumps will remain closed every Sunday and later on every public holiday, informed Vidarbha Petrol Dealers Association president Harvinder Singh Bhatia.
Bhatia said Central government constituted Apurva Chandra committee in 2010 considering various demands of petrol pump dealers. The committee had suggested increasing margin profit among its other recommendations and the report was handed to Centre in 2011. But the recommendations have not been implemented since last five years, said Bhatia.
