The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has planned to protest the delay in paying CNG dealers’ power bills by banning the sale of CNG in Delhi on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm.
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) consumers in Delhi won’t have access to the fuel today since CNG merchants in the nation’s capital won’t receive their energy bills until after 10 p.m., which is being delayed in protest. On August 10 in the nation’s capital, the Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) decided against selling CNG.
We have decided to opt for no CNG sale on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a mark of protest, DDPA President Anurag Narain said in a letter to Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) last month.
The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association stated in a letter that they will not be selling any CNG on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a show of protest.” Anurag Narain, president of the DDPA, wrote a letter to Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) in which he stated that “DPDA is forced to take this step due to IGL’s refusal to pay the actual electricity reimbursement of CNG facilities to the dealers of Delhi who are suffering enormous financial losses every month.”
Dealers in Delhi waited patiently for two years while adhering to all IGL and OMC instructions about the installation of individual submeters, their calibration, and the creation of systems for online readings.
However, we hate to report that IGL police obstructed the process at every turn, and after spending two years and the dealer’s money on submeters, we realised that the whole thing would never be finished.
“On March 2, 2022, over 70 dealers met with SLC and IGL officials to discuss the aforementioned issue, and dealers were promised a resolution within a month. IGL then explained to us in the month of April how the real usage was calculated by analysing the data from the discom meters using a formula that automatically reflected any changes to the discom charges. IGL’s failure to keep that April 2022 commitment is shocking, and it raises significant questions about their motivations, the DPDA said in the letter.
