4339 ROs and 1805 LPG Distributorship Alloted Under Scheduled Castes Quota

New Delhi: December 18,2012

The Minister of State for Petroleum & Natural Gas Smt. Panabaka Lakshmi informed the Rajya Sabha in a written reply today that a total of 4339 retail outlet (RO) dealerships and 1805 LPG distributorships including Rajiv Gandhi Gramin LPG Vitraks (RGGLV) of public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs) viz. Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOC), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPC) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPC) have been allotted to Scheduled Castes (SC) category in the country (as on 01 October, 2012)

Smt. Lakshmi also informed this as on 1.10.2012, there are 659 RO dealerships and 485 LPG distributorships including RGGLV under SC category throughout the country, pending for commissioning.

She added that the reason for pendency of RO dealerships under SC category is on account of several reasons. First is the non-availability of suitable plots of land for development of the ROs at advertised location. In view of this situation, all pending Letter of Intent (LOI) holders have recently been advised to arrange suitable land at a place of their choice anywhere in the country irrespective of State/ Class of market for setting up of RO dealerships subject to the offered land meeting techno-commercial viability norms.

The Minister further stated that delay in commissioning of LPG distributorships is also caused by:

i) Delay in getting various approvals and statutory licenses from authorities like Petroleum & Explosives Safety Organization (PESO), No Objection Certificates from various State Government Departments, etc by the LOI holder.

ii) Delay in providing of infrastructure viz. godown, showroom etc. by the LOI holder.

iii) Court Cases / Litigation etc.
