Further the above move will be against the justification to the investment done by the RO Owner's and will it be justified that his volume is been taken away by the unapproved bowser's and what's the fault of the dealership who cannt afford the same and thier livelihood will be on stake, which is already been under the arbitrary of non passing of Justified Margin by OMCs since last 7yrs.


Further please help us understand on below.

1. Results of meetings done across on availability of Petroleum Products? Is there any shortage witnessed? If yes who's responsible?

2. OMCs says that ROs across are planned in line of market growth and demands generated, so was the planning of ROs and infrastructure was not adequate to meet the demands?

3. Who will safeguard the interest of low volume dealer's, who will again be pushed to the corner by such moves?

4. Who will ensure compliance,knowing the fact that PESO till date is not available with approved parking areas?

5. Is safety of the mass is not a priority and congested areas will be pushed to fell the heat under any mishaps under manhandling of flammables?

6.Who will ensure Q&Q under such deliveries and compliance under BIS?

We as Petroleum Dealer's across seeks answers on the above and justification as per the law of land.

7.Whats the provision of changing the act and changing just to promote few corporate houses is Justified?
