The supply of petroleum fuels in the capital partly resumed from Wednesday after the government and petroleum suppliers reached an understanding yesterday. The tankers filled with petrol reached the capital this morning from Birgunj.
22 petrol tankers and 20 diesel-laden tankers have already arrived at Nepal Oil Corporations’ Thankot Petrol Depot.
Similarly, petroleum products dealers have also imported 9 tankers of petrol from Amlekhgunj today.
“Some of the tankers have been sent to various petrol pumps in the valley,” NOC’s spokesperson Ichhya Bikram Thapa said.
The NOC informed that if the rate of import continues on the present speed, then the supply of petroleum products would resume normally again from Friday in the capital.
