Petrol pumps to sell 5 Kg LPG cylinders
The Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas M Veerappa Moily has approved a proposal to extend the scope of the Scheme for sale of non-subsidised 5 KG LPG cylinders from Petrol Stations of Oil Marketing PSUs (OMCs).

The Scheme was earlier launched by Moily on October 5, 2013 at Bangalore for sale of these cylinders from select Company Owned and Company Operated (COCO) Petrol Pumps in Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore.

Further, OMCs have been allowed to include Petrol Stations other than COCO subject to the statutory clearances of OISD/PESO (Oil Industry Safety Directorate/ Petroleum Explosive & Safety.

This decision is expected to benefit the common man as sale of 5 kg LPG cylinders at market price with minimal documentation would facilitate easier availability of LPG at more selling points, said Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas.

This scheme is expected to be a boon to migratory population such as students, IT professionals, BPO employees and persons with odd duty timings as it would provide them the flexibility to pick up cylinders and obtain subsequent refills at time of their choice as Petrol Stations are open for longer hours, said the ministry.
