Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The situation on the second day of the New Year turned normal as far as the supply of petrol at petrol pumps of the city was concerned and the panic seen on the first day had disappeared completely. Chief Minister Dr Mohan Yadav also took stock of the situation of supply of essential items through video conferencing with collector Ilayraja T.
To ensure the smooth supply of petrol and diesel at the pumps, collector Ilayraja T reached the depots of two public sector oil marketing companies (OMC) located in Manglia. He talked to officials of the OMC and drivers of the oil tankers too. The officials of the OMC informed that they have enough stock of both fuels. Taking a precautionary step, naib tehsildars were deployed at the depots to tackle any kind of situation and ensure the safe departure of oil tankers from the depots.
In the early morning a mild rush of people was seen at some pumps, but as the day advanced the situation became quite normal and this normalcy lasted the whole day.
Pawan Jain, member of Indore Petroleum Dealers Association informed that on Tuesday the situation was not only normal but off-take of the fuels was below the average demand as the people had filled-up petrol tanks of their vehicles yesterday only.
Notices will be issued
for breach of contract
The collector directed the concerned officials to immediately issue notices for breach of contract to the registered transport contractors of the oil company, who are not supplying the fuels through tankers.
