Solariazation of Retail Outlets:
We had already solarised around 620 Retail Outlets out of 795 ROs to make our Retail Outlet self sufficient with Green Energy and reducing usage of conventional energies. But, almost all the solar panels are destroyed during Fanni Cyclone. We are on the job of restoring it fully fledged.
Caution for RO advertisement (on dated 25.11.2018):
It has come to the notice of Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs), that a number of fake websites have been created by some unknown persons/bogus agencies to fraudulently offer LPG distributorships and/or Retail Outlet dealerships and demanding money in the process.  In order to dupe innocent applicants, the layout of the fake website has been kept similar to the original websites: www.lpgvitarakchayan.in and www.petrolpumpdealerchayan.in These fake websites are targeting innocent people and are sending fake emails allegedly from the Oil Marketing Companies (using OMC logos on their letterhead for  offering LPG Distributorships / Retail Outlets) and are collecting huge sums of money in the name of OMCs. Hence through your esteemed media channels, we request you people to make general public aware about the issue and advise to visit ONLY official websites of OMCs at www.lpgvitarakchayan.in (for LPG distributorships) and  www.petrolpumpdealerchayan.in  ( for Retail Outlet dealerships) for authentic and official information and prevent themselves from being cheated by the unscrupulous elements.
