Consumers to get the right quantity, as all the LPG bottling plants have been modernised


     As per the affidavit filed before the Supreme Court, by the Director (Marketing) of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, 178 of the total 184 LPG bottling plants which were having mechanical carousel (filling) machines have been converted to electronic filling systems, so as ensure the right quantity of LPG in the cooking gas refills.  This major improvement was brought to the notice of the Supreme Court, as per its directive on 17th July 2012, in the appeal of Consumer Protection Council, Rourkela.  The apex court wanted to know as to what the government had done on the order of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, made in 2007.  Thanks to the initiative of CPC, Rourkela, now the entire domestic LPG consumers can look forward to getting the right quantity of cooking gas in their refill cylinders.  Incidentally the Ministry, through the OMCs (Oil Marketing Companies) such as IOC, BPCL and HPCL had to incur an expenditure of over Rs. 250 crores for this modernisation.  The left over units of IOC (2 nos., by Sept. 12), HPC (1 no., by March 13) and BPC (3 nos., by March 14) will be completed.
