Chandigarh, August 20

To meet the continuously growing demand for petrol in the city, Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation Limited (CITCO) started its sixth petrol and CNG station at the Industrial Area, Phase 1, on the Hallo Majra road here today.

UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore dedicated the state-of-the-art Indian Oil (IOCL) outlet to customers. Dharam Pal, UT Adviser; Ravi Kant Sharma, city Mayor; Arun Kumar Gupta, Principal Secretary (Home)-cum-Chairman, CITCO; Jasvinder Kaur Sidhu , MD, CITCO; Rubinderjit Singh Brar, Chief General Manager, CITCO; SM Vaidya, Chairman, IOCL; Sujoy Choudhury, Executive Director, and State Head, IOCL, Punjab; and other senior officials of the Administration and IOCL were present on the occasion.

The outlet will significantly add to the convenience of residents in the surrounding areas by reducing their travelling time for fuel requirements. During the event, the first LPG composite cylinder was also handed over to the UT Administrator by the IOCL Chairman.

Presently, CITCO owns five petrol pumps in the city, including a compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensing pump on Madhya Marg in Sector 17.

“With the new addition, we can meet the demand of the residents, especially the traffic on the National Highway moving towards Delhi, and it will add to our revenue,” said the MD, CITCO. Meanwhile, the first 200 customers will get a copy of The Tribune free of cost at the petrol station every day as part of a campaign being launched by the English daily.
