New Delhi: Ajay Bansal, president of the All India Petroleum Dealers Association, said, “To ensure the safety of our employees, we decided yesterday not to sell fuel to those who do not wear face masks at fuel retail outlets across India in the wake of the Corona virus epidemic. ”
Ajay Bansal, president of All India Petroleum Dealers Association, said, “Petrol pumps are open 365 days and 24 hours a year. As the government declares petrol pumps to be essential services, our employees are in constant contact with the customer. Living and looking at this situation, we have decided that no person who is not wearing a mask will be allowed to buy fuel. ”
“It will be a good move for customers and our employees because it will force customers to wear masks at all times,” he said.
In relation to the decline in sales of petrol and crude oil in the wake of the nationwide lockdown, he called it “badly affected”, as sales have fallen by 90 percent. Bansal said, “We were selling only about 10 per cent of what we were selling before the lockdown. We have suffered a lot.”
At a petrol pump in Mayur Vihar, Delhi, a customer was asked to wear a mask to buy petrol. Akash, who was refused fuel due to not wearing a mask, said, “I think this is the right step and I fully support this decision.”
Talking to Shripal Singh, the manager of a petrol pump at Mayur Vihar Phase-1, he said, “In view of the situation of COVID 19 (Corona virus), we have also organized this campaign for the safety of customers and employees. We Will follow this rule until this epidemic is over. “
