DA checks petrol pumps, detects irregularity

ITANAGAR, Nov 15: A team of officers comprising SDO Sangeeta Yirang, CO Choiki Dondup and Legal Metrology Inspector G Singpho conducted surprise checking of the petrol pumps here on Thursday.
During the drive, an irregularity was detected at Memo Filling Station, where the Diesel-I pump was giving short delivery of 50 MI against the five litres test capacity measures.
Explaining that the fluctuation in fuel delivery was “due to some wiring issues,” the manager of the petrol pump assured that the irregularity would be corrected at the earliest.
The SDO informed that the legal metrology department will serve a notice to the petrol station and action would be initiated as per the Legal Metrology Act.
“No delivery will be allowed from the diesel pump at the said petrol station until the pump is repaired,” DC Prince Dhawan said.
The drive, which has been initiated after receiving public complaints, will continue, the DC said, and directed all the petrol pumps to check any irregularity in their systems, saying proper action would otherwise be initiated as per the law. (DIPRO)
