In May 2019, Pepfuels signed a tri-party agreement with state-owned oil marketing company Indian Oil Corporation for doorstep delivery.
According to standard fire and fuel safety regulations, one can only store around 990L petrol for own usage. Storing more fuel than the restricted limit is dangerous, especially when one carries the containers in a vehicle.
“There are some businesses, industries, hospitals where fuel is required in large amounts regularly. Standing in queues during peak hours for fuel not only wastage of time but also generates a lot of pollution and traffic issues,” says Kathil from pepfuels.
