Strict action to be taken against LPG sector profiteers


Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) terming overcharging and less filling of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders as “an offence” has warned of strict action against elements involved in illegal practice.

In a statement on Sunday, OGRA spokesman Imran Ghaznavi advised the LPG consumers to check the quantity of the commodity considering “total weight of filled cylinder minus the weight of empty cylinder as it is mentioned on each cylinder.”

He said the LPG cylinders should be weighed before taking delivery from the distributors by the general public.

He said the authority had directed all the LPG marketing companies as well as distributors to install “accurate weighing scales for correct measurement,” besides ensuring that LPG cylinders carried markings that should be clearly readable by a common eye.
