NOC imposes quota system for fuel supply
KATHMANDU — NEpal Oil Corporation has imposed a quota system in fuel after halt in fuel supply across the country due to protest from petroleum transport workers.
The NOC has asked petrol pumps to distribute five liters to two wheelers , 15 liters to four wheelers and 50-100 liters to public vehicles per day.
The Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs Association (FNNTEA) has been protesting against the new Criminal Code for the last three days arguing that the code is against them.
They have submitted 13-point demand to the government which, among others, calls for rollback of some provisions that proposes increment in punishment for drivers for death resulting from driver’s negligence.
As per the new Criminal Code, drivers can be sentenced to a jail term of 3 to 10 years in case of death of people in road accidents. Earlier, it was 2 to 10 years. The new code has also mandated a fine of Rs30,000 to Rs100,000 in such cases.
Normally, NOC tends to store seven days fuel backup. However, the state owned oil monopoly said that its stock had depleted because fuel has been coming from Siliguri depot only.
NOC spokesperson Birendra Kumar Goit said supplies had been affected after tanker operators refused to transport fuel.Follow @gorkhapost
