Many commodities are delivered to our doorstep by the 'Home delivery Option' as a means of customer service and a means of expanding the business.
We need to wait and see how safe is the dispensing of diesel or petrol. This would be more amenable to adulteration and pilferages. It would also increase the competition among the local petrol bunk owners. I hope there is not rivalry and problems because two-wheeler taxis, autos and cabs drivers can be seen having heated arguments at the train stations or bus stops to pick up fares in big cities.
Few months back the petroleum minister had tweeted about doorstep delivery of petroleum products. It appears that only after that efforts were made by the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. to implement the scheme.
Such vehicles may not be safe to deliver petroleum products in thickly populated area in the normal course. The petrol pump owners were also apprehensive about the scheme.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
