A monitoring team headed by Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supplies Matrika Yadav sealed two petrol pumps for cheating customers on Monday.

The team comprising Director General at the Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology Bishwababu Pudasaini, Minister Yadav’s personal secretary Santosh Bista and technical human resources from the Nepal Oil Corporation monitored five petrol pumps in the Kathmandu Valley and sealed two among them.

Ekantakuna-based Prashanti Oil Distributor and Chapagaun Dobato-based Mahalaxmi Oil Center were sealed for violating the business operation standards and financially cheating customers, according to Bista.

The Prashanti was supplying 30 ml less in the distribution of 10 per liters of petro products while the Mahalaxmi was reducing 40 ml in the supply of 10 per liters. Minor weaknesses were reported in other three petrol pumps and they were warned to meet the standards.

The Ministry said that it would continue the market monitoring for the welfare of consumers and such works would be expanded to other areas as well in the future. RSS
