New Delhi: A plea alleging fraudulent practices by several fuel stations in the country and seeking transparency in this regard has been filed in the Supreme Court.
Plea to ensure transparency at fuel stations
The plea filed by advocate Amit Sahni claimed that petrol pump owners are indulging in "systematic and organised cheating" with customers.
The petition has also made a representation to the government that proper regulations are required to ensure transparency at petrol pumps. “Black hose pipe used for fuel vending may be replaced with transparent pipe so that the consumer must see the fuel passing through the same in his/her vehicle.”
Transparent dispenser with measurements may be installed along with the fuel vending machines in such a way to fill the fuel in the transparent dispenser first and then the same is transmitted to the vehicle through transparent hose pipe," the petitioner suggested.
