To reduce fuel usage, petrol pumps to be shut on Sundays May 14 onwards


New Delhi, Apr 10:Moving in tandem with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to reduce consumption of fuel, petroleum dealers have decided to shut down on every Sunday from May 14 onwards.

This comes at a time when the Government is yet to take a call on dealers’ commission, something that the petrol pump owners will be protesting by shutting fuel stations on May 10 as no purchase day.

“In line with the Prime Minister’s appeal to reduce fuel consumption the CIPD has decided to request its members to declare Sunday as holiday from 14 May 2017,” said AD Sathyanarayan, president, Consortium of India Petroleum Dealers.

He told Business Standard that except for emergency services like ambulances, fuel will not be available for other vehicles on Sundays.
