Bike to get 3 litres and car to get only 10 litres, govt orders amid fuel shortage

Aizwal: The Mizoram government has ordered control of procurement of diesel and petrol as vehicular movement, including tankers carrying fuel, has been stopped on NH-306. An order issued by the Department of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs on Friday said the state could face a severe fuel crisis due to the interstate border dispute.

The order says that all filling stations are instructed not to issue petrol and diesel beyond the prescribed quantity. Only vehicles that go to filling stations will be released oil. The amount of fuel that can be purchased at a time by heavy motor vehicles like six, eight and twelve wheelers are allowed up to 50 litres and for pickup trucks like medium motor vehicles up to 20 litres. The order said that a maximum of three litres for scooters, five litres for other two-wheelers and 10 litres for cars is allowed. Trucks carrying rice sacks, oil and LPG will be allowed to take fuel. The order says that taking fuel from filling stations in containers or gallon barrels is completely prohibited.

The order also states that all filling stations will have to provide information about active stock to the state legal metrology department daily. They cannot distribute oil without prior permission of the supply department when their stock position is 5,000 litres for petrol, and 7,000 litres of diesel. All filling stations will be open from 6 am to 6 pm from Monday to Saturday.
