Soon, Petrol & Diesel Available For Home Delivery
Like smart phones, grocery and apparels, the fuels – petroleum and diesel will also be made available at our door steps. The oil companies -Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) are planning to introduce home delivery of petrol and diesel across the country soon.
The idea has been mooted by the Petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan at a meeting with the oil companies. The minister felt that introduction of e-commerce in the sale of fuels will help to encourage digital transactions and prevent long queues at the petroleum bunks every day.
As per the plan, the minister said the consumers will book petrol and diesel in advance through online mode and the oil companies will deliver directly at home. The minister’s idea assumed significance following the recent decision to shut down petrol pumps on all Sundays from May 14 by the petrol pump managements in the country.
