DC Srinagar directs officials to strictly implement order prohibiting fuel storage

Deputy Commissioner Srinagar, Dr Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, Thursday directed the officials to strictly implement the order regulating sale of fuel at fuel stations.

The DC was speaking in a meeting with Assistant Commissioners Food Safety and Drug Control and Deputy Controller Legal Metrology.


He also instructed for continuous inspection of quality and pricing of consumable food items and medicines sold in markets across the district, said an official spokesman.

The DC said sufficient quantities of fuel stocks are now available and said that there was no need for indulging in panic-consumption as is being seen at fuel stations since this morning.

He said an official has been deployed at each of the 46 fuel stations across the district to ensure strict implementation of the order prohibiting fuel storage.

He said reports of consumers queuing up with containers have been received from several fuel stations. 

He said no one will be provided fuel in containers from tomorrow and that strict action will be taken against violations in the regard.

Dr Shahid Iqbal said that teams comprising officials from Food Safety, Drug Control and Legal Metrology are undertaking inspections of markets across the district to ensure fair-pricing of commodities sold in markets.
