After May 10, Petrol pumps to remain shut on every Sunday

As per reports, the decision was taken since the top management of the public sector oil companies did not take any decision towards the margin money payment in the last seven years because of which the petrol and diesel retailers were unable to bear the increasing cost of lighting, human resources and other facilities at the filling stations in the multiple shifts.

Ravi Shinde of the Petrol Dealers' Association said,"We had withdrawn the strike threat in January after oil marketing companies assured to revise dealer commission rates. But nothing happened in four months.''
