Petro dealers to go on nationwide strike on Oct 13

New Delhi, Oct 7 (UNI) Petroleum dealers would go on nationwide strike on October 13 to press for various demands, including better margins and inclusion of petroleum products in the Goods and Services Tax. “A decision on the issue was taken at the first joint meeting of United Petroleum Front (UPF), an umbrella body of three nation-wide organisations of all petrol dealers,” a petrol pump operator’s association official said on Saturday. The demands include implementation of the pending agreement signed with oil marketing companies on November 4, 2016, scrapping unfair penalties imposed under Marketing Discipline Guidelines, and approved but not given dealer margins. . It warned that if the demands were not met at the earliest, fuel dealers will be forced to stop, indefinitely, purchase and sale operations from October 27. 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. UNI JPG RSA 2127
