- According to the Central Electricity Authority, in April 2022, the demand-supply gap was about 2.6 billion units, or 1.9% of overall demand that month, with the Northern region faring the worst, its gap at 3.7%.
Doorstep diesel delivery startup Humsafar is having a great year. This fiscal alone, it plans to ramp up its doorstep diesel delivery business from 100 to over 200 cities. The startup operates a fleet of mobile fuel pumps mounted on light trucks, as well as a number of static diesel storage units. It retails 20-litre steel jerrycans of diesel. In 2022-23, it hopes to capture around 30% market share in this rapidly growing business.
