Petrol pump dealers of Delhi have almost completed their preparations to implement the scheme for daily changes in petrol and diesel prices. In this, a dealer himself will come to the petrol pump at 6 in the morning and by inserting the secret code in the machines, will update the rate, while some have made the responsibility of their managers. However, most of the petrol pump owners say that one major problem in this system is that not all petrol pumps are connected to the servers of oil companies.
In such a situation, the system with automatic rate change could not be implemented. Pump dealers will have to change the rate of oil by visiting pumps every day at their level. In this case, All India Petroleum Dealers Association President Ajay Bansal and Treasurer Nitin Goyal said that only 30 percent of the 398 petrol pumps in Delhi are connected to the servers of IOC, BPC and HPC Oil companies. The rest will have to be manually changed. Nevertheless, the new system of change of rates will be effective from 6 a.m. on June 16.
We are ready for this. Another petrol pump owner, Sudhir Gupta, said that on the first day the prices of petrol and diesel are expected to decrease. It can be from one to one and a half rupees. He also told that it is not that there will be a huge difference in oil prices on every petrol pump. It will depend on different companies but their prices will vary from five to ten paise per litre.
For example, if the IOC company has increased the price of oil by one rupee per litre then there will be as many petrol pumps as IOC in Delhi. All of them will have the same rate as the IOC has issued. But it may be that there is a difference of money on BPC and HPC petrol pumps. But this difference will not be too much. Petrol pump dealers say that every day new rates we have to put on our notice board of our petrol pumps, i.e. where the sale and stock are written. As well in the machines, it will be changed.
