Imphal, May 4: Two teams led by Director of Consumer Affairs Food and Public Distribution (CAF and PD) today inspected oil pumps in various areas of Imphal East and Imphal West districts. Speaking to the media persons, Yumnam Ranjan, Director of CAF and PD said that some oil pumps are not giving fuels to the public causing serious inconveniences. CAF and PD department along with the state government will take up strict actions against those oil pumps which were found closed after collecting petroleum products from the oil depot, he added. Yumnam Ranjan also clarified that there is buffer stock of petroleum products for at least 30 days at the oil depot and appealed the public not to panic. Routine updates on the stock levels of petrol and diesel are being sent to the department from the IOC and there is no real need to panic, he added. CAF and PD will also conduct drives at oil pumps regularly as part of a policy including those in hill districts, he added. The teams inspected PCTC, M/S K Nilo Singh, M/S Uripok Energy Station, Highway Petroleum, Singjamei NRL oil pumps etc. and checked the stocks of petrol and diesel available at the respective pumps. Many oil pumps remained close with sign board of out of stock placed in front of the pumps despite having adequate stocks of petroleum products while some of the pumps were being used as parking lots. Ranjan said those oil agencies that are not offering public service or voluntarily closing despite having sufficient stock of petroleum products will be penalized. The nature of punishment, whether to seal the oil pumps or cancel their licenses, will be decided at the government level, he said adding that many NRL oil pumps were found closed for many days. The strike of the drivers was settled amicably after assurance of a satisfactory package for them. The frequency of incoming oil tankers to the state has normalized and the feeling of an artificial scarcity of petroleum products is a creation of the oil agencies, he asserted.
