Petrol pump dealers withdraw stir call

New Delhi, Oct 11: Petrol pump dealers on Wednesday called off their proposed strike on 13th October, according to industry body United Petroleum Front (UPF). According to a UPF spokesperson, the dealers’ association has withdrawn its call for a 24-hour strike of fuel pumps on Friday. UPF represents over 54,000 dealers from the Federation of All-India Petroleum Traders, the All-India Petroleum Dealers Association and the Consortium of Indian Petroleum Dealers. The dealers are protesting marketing guidelines amended by public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs), which introduce stringent penal action for offences involving short delivery of products, operating automated retail units on manual mode and improper maintenance of toilets.
