Petrol pumps to operate till 5 PM


Petroleum dealers across the state operate in a single shift from Monday. The petrol depots would be operating from 9 in the morning to 5 in the evening. The decision was taken to press for their demands on payment of commission as per the cost-based structure as recommended by Apoorva Chandra Committee.


The petroleum dealers in Assam and other north eastern states will operate only one shift in order to cut costs. They said that there has been no revision in commission for past two years. In these years, the cost of operations and investments have gone up substantially.
