New Delhi: India is considering a plan for home delivery of petroleum products to consumers if they make a pre-booking to cut long queues at fuel stations, the oil ministry tweeted on Friday.
About 350 million people come to fuel stations every day, it said. Annually, Rs 25,000 crore ($387.00 million) worth transactions take place at fuel stations. As per the plan, the consumers can book petrol and diesel online, and these will be delivered home by the oil companies including Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation, reports said.
India, the world's third biggest oil consumer, will introduce daily price revision of petrol and diesel in five cities from May 1, ahead of a nationwide rollout of the plan.
