Alternate days plying for private cars sees petrol, diesel sales dip 25% in Delhi

January 8, 2016

( ) According to petrol pump owners, petrol and diesel sales have dropped nearly a quarter in Delhi in the week following the launch of the odd-even policy that allows private cars to ply only on alternate days as per the last digit in their registration numbers.
Nitin Goyal, a petrol pump owner, said the volume at his station at Karkardooma in East Delhi has fallen nearly 25% since the odd-even formula was rolled out on January 1. Cars account for about 40% of his sales and bikes for the balance. Pumps dependent more on cars have seen a steeper fall. Delhi has about 400 filling stations, with each selling 470,000 litres of petrol and diesel on average every month. Ajay Bansal,  chief of All India Petroleum Dealers Association said “This can fall to 300,000 litres this month if sales were to slide at this pace.”
