New Delhi: India is considering a plan for home delivery of petroleum products to consumers if they make a pre-booking, to cut long queues at fuel stations, the oil ministry tweeted on Friday.
About 350 million people come to fuel stations every day, it said. Annually, Rs25 billion ($387.00 million) worth of transactions takes place at fuel stations.
India, the world’s third-biggest oil consumer, will be introducing daily price revision of petrol and diesel in five cities from 1 May, ahead of a nation-wide roll out of the plan.
