Around 54,000 petrol pumps all over India will go on a day-long strike on October 13 in support of their long-pending demands.
Their demands include,
- Implementation of the pending agreement signed with oil marketing companies on November 4, 2016.
- Scrapping unfair penalties imposed under Marketing Discipline Guidelines.
- Approved but not given dealer margins.
“As the first step, we shall stop buying and selling petrol/diesel at all the 54,000 pumps in the country on October 13. If our demands are not accepted, then from October 27, we will launch an indefinite nationwide strike,” Lodh said, Federation Of Maharashtra Petrol Dealers Association (Fampeda).
As the most of the petrol pumps are going to be shut for full day, all the commuters are advised to fill up their tanks in order to avoid inconvenience.
